About a month ago I got a tip that there was an outdoor public swimming pool about 15 minutes e-bike drive from our house. JD and I have been waiting for a dry and sunny day ever since. Yesterday, the constant rainstorms finally subsided (for now, at least) and so we headed for the hidden pool.
It wasn't as busy as I'd expected and the water was cold, but bearable. JD loved the children's pool where he could easily stand up (he's got used to coping with adult pools up until now). And when he found a stack of plastic fish, he was in his element, throwing them around the pool and then diving underwater to fetch them all. I just lay quietly in a corner of the pool to keep an eye on him but, after 15 minutes, the local kids had clocked me and worked up the courage to come and try their English on me!
