My pool is back!
I am so happy to report that my pool (Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion) is back! After even a longer delay, the pool is open. I went yesterday, wish I could have gone today. My friend Julia and I had resolved that we would try swimming at other pools during the 5+ week closure. But we didn't do too well; she went to Lynnwood once and I went to Lynnwod once and Shoreline once. Both times I found the pools dark and cold. Both were to deepwater classes during the day. The classes were fine. But so cold and not my pool!
So I went back. The lady at the desk recognized me; I asked her about the temperature. She wasn't sure it was quite up to their usual temperature. But first time I stuck my foot in...oh yeah...nice and warm. I wasn't at those unfamiliar dark cold pools. I don't have the luxury of a class. I spent 45 minutes in the water.
And their new therapy pool? Heavenly! In the fall they tore out the existing hot tub/jacuzzi. Which really hadn't worked for a long time. There was only one water jet that worked sort of, most of the time anyway. But I wasn't proud. The new pool has all of the jets working. Imagine! It felt so good. I felt really good the rest of the afternoon and I think it's the massage action of the therapy pool.
I might mention that this pool is only about 3 miles from me and in a very modest area.
My pool is back! Yay!
