The pool really is literally cool sometimes, especially in June as the weather is warming up before I turn on the heat pump too much. The water gets warmer as the weather does and then it's really nice to have the pool to play in (higher electric bills notwithstanding!).
On a nice afternoon I sat poolside reading the paper and watching Sam as he played around, wanting an audience, which I gladly gave him. It had been a very long fall, winter, and spring, so it was good to be able to swim and relax (and in my case, spectate) again.
