Outdoor Watery Wednesday - My Morning Swim



Early mornings I
swim about an hour in
this lovely blue pool



with a friend who lives
in the complex close to my
home by the seashore.



Note the lovely blue
skies above ... at last the drear
morning 'gloom' is gone
.

Nice poem, nice pool. It reminds me of one we used in Lincoln, Nebraska, when I left home.
We have two pools in at our club houses but I haven't used them this summer. I did dip in the neighbor's a couple of times.

If I could swim, I would sure like to join here. Looks like a very nice place to exercise and relax.

The ripples and lights dancing on the water are beautiful! Makes me wish we had filled our pool this year but the girls were busy with their friends..... Oh well!

What a great place for aa swim. It's good that you swim daily -- that should help keep you healthy. They say swimming is the best kind of exercise.

What a lovely place for your morning swim :)

Sallie said...

very nice pool shots. I don't have a pool close to where we're staying at Fern Ridge Lake in Oregon. Our swimming area is muddy looking. I envy you!

Thank you for visiting my blog post on Crater Lake. It *is* beautiful, but not good for swimming at all ;>).

Swimming is a great and fun exercise. And your pool is so huge! I do only half an hour each day (summer only, no heated pool) and it really has helped me with my blood pressure. Kudos to both of us!

Mary said...

Lovely, peaceful and refreshing. That's a hard combination to beat. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

Sandee said...

The best exercise there is is the pool. Good for you. We have to keep moving or else.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

A delightful pool.

Being a pool rat, I totally love these photos. I really like the first one as it is very inviting and calling my name for a few laps.
Happy OW!

Oh my gosh, that pool is gorgeous. Lucky you to be able to swim every morning. I love the quote and believe it too. Great thought for the day.

Hugs...Jeanne
