Swimming when it’s not summer – the high school pool

My  hometown pool in eastern Pennsylvania is closed for the season — only summer outdoor  swimming around here, though September is often warm enough for outdoor swimming.   I discovered that the local high school has a wonderful pool, available to the public from September through May.   After that we switch to the outdoor community pool.  A season pass is very affordable.

I’ve been here over a year.  I vaguely remember reading about swimming at the high school last year,  but I never acted on it.  Pity.  I could have used the calm and peaceful (yet active and healthy!) enjoyment I get from swimming, though  I don’t swim as often I should.  I love water and swimming so much that I even find an indoor pool to be beautiful.

If and when I ever get to move out (assuming I get a job, think I’m close) — I may still swim here some Saturday mornings.  I’m still planning to be somewhere in the vicinity of eastern Pennsylvania (though it might be New Jersey or Delaware) in the foreseeable future.

Here are some pictures, taken with my Motorola Droid Smartphone.
