Summer Swimming

This is The Sellwood Pool,
where I spend my summer mornings. It's a community pool in my neighborhood, and it is a treat. During the winter and the tortuously long, cold spring I dream of swimming in this pool.

With a slide and lots of fountains and water features it's a madhouse in the long, hot afternoons of July and August. But in the mornings it is enjoyed by just a few regular laps swimmers and the swim team.

It's only open from mid-June until the end of the Labor Day weekend, but those few months are delicious. And now it's just a fond memory, until next June.
