In the Swim

Today we went for our first swim. It’s still cold [the water temp is now 64 degrees] and the wind was still blowing today, but we just couldn’t stand it any longer. So, we took the plunge into the icy depths of the pool. We both waded around in the shallow end fist where it’s only about 3.5 feet deep to get used to the cold. Rick submerged his body first and I followed within a few minutes. The dogs went wild, running back and forth, barking furiously, and they all seemed really concerned. Hailey was the funniest and we were sure she was going to jump in with us. But alas, we had no joiners in the pool. Every lap that we did Hailey was always waiting at the end of the pool and gave us nose licks, as if to say, are you guys okay in there?  what are you doing?  Too funny. Here is Rick trying to entice her into the pool. It didn’t work.

We swam for awhile, but WHEW, I didn’t realize how out of shape I was until I started swimming laps. That’s a lot of work! I’m just glad to know I can still swim since it’s been many years! You’ll be glad to know I did end up wearing one of my L. L. Bean swimsuits instead of going naked. Too cold. We had visions of late-night skinny dipping going through our heads about a month ago. I think we’ve put those plans on hold for awhile. Maybe in August.


Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
