By the Sea

Many of the homes we looked at in our exploration of the area had swimming pools in their back yards. The house we purchased did not. I wasn't keen on having a pool. I know how to swim, but I've never really enjoyed it. However, the Mister wanted one. So, we contracted to have a pool installed in our back yard. 

Here's the story in pictures:











I am so glad that we went forward with this project. I love having the pool. What a surprise! I find it amazingly refreshing to simply jump in, paddle around for a bit, and then get out. (Especially this week with temps in the high 90's and a heat index in the triple digits!) Our project has also given us a beautiful outdoor room where we spend many hours each day.

  2. Perfect now that you have to spend the summer there. I understand it gets very hot and muggy!

    1. Yes, indeed! However, I have discovered that most often the humidity goes down in the evening, and I have been enjoying lovely walks with the dogs at dusk.

    1. I am outside in our new room several hours a day. I'm sitting on the lanai as I type (Watching numerous private fireworks displays!).
