When I was a kid I loved to swim (once I learned to swim, that’s a whole nother story) none of my friends had pools so it was always a treat when we went on vacation and stayed in a hotel with a pool, or I would stay with my cousins for a few weeks every summer and we would go to the community pool in Hydro. I dreamed about having a pool someday, you know some big monster with different levels and a slide and maybe a cave or grotto that you could swim in, now all I can think about is the cost and the maintenance but that doesn’t mean I don’t think they’re beautiful and there are still those hot Oklahoma days when I wish we had a pool to cool off in. I found some great pics of pools, both past and present, to ponder as we head into the end of summer and prepare for school to start, maybe I need to re-think the NO pool policy. Enjoy!!!
