I was having a lot of trouble coming up with this weeks blog. I asked my husband if he had any ideas and he couldn’t come up with anything either.
Then yesterday (Saturday) while my daughter was swimming she suggested I write a blog post on swimming. I told her I didn’t think anyone would care to read a blog about swimming.
While I watched her I started to think about when I was growing up. How much I loved the pool, but didn’t care much for the beach. Then I remembered how my husbands family thinks a lake with some sand is considered a beach. That got me wondering. What do people like better the pool or the beach.
You see growing up we didn’t have a pool. Wait I take that back! We had a pool for a brief time one Summer until we found out our landlord was allergic to chlorine. That was the ONLY Summer we ever had a pool.
Anyway! Other than that Summer the only times I got to swim in a pool was on vacation or at my uncle’s house on Long Island. My mom would take me to Coney Island beach once or twice. We always had a nice time, but man were those beach days hot.
After I got married my husband and I would go to the “beach” with his family. Really it was a lake. I would go in the water with them, but in all honesty I didn’t like it.
After years of being married my husband finally agreed to buying a Walmart above ground pool for our family. It was nice, but they don’t last long. About three years ago we bought a real above ground pool with a heater. I love this pool!
I still don’t care for the beach. I don’t mind going to the lake every once in a while. But I will forever be a pool girl. What about you? Do you like the pool or do you prefer the beach?
