Today I was introduced to Pool Maintenance. It was a crash cource – but I managed. Gary handled the pumps and I worked on vacuuming. I don’t think I have ever seen a pool just like this one – it really is a Ce-ment Pond!
With all the campers on a week long canoe trip, it’s a good time to do a thorough vacuuming and skimming (although those of you with pools know there is no such thing as being done with vacuuming and skimming!). I confess I have a whole new appreciation for pool owners. If you are one – God Bless you! And if you ever go swimming at a friend’s pool – hug them every time you go, and pick up that skimmer when you get a chance! 🙂 I got about half done today (well, Gary did do some since he was hot), and I hope to finish tomorrow. Of course, by Thursday I’ll be back in the shallow end starting again.
Those canoes might look like they’re not taking much stuff, but don’t believe it! They loaded up a pontoon boat and two additional canoes that were pulled behind boat. And, they meet up with folks tomorrow to bring them additional food!
I’m sure they are having a wonderful time (plus that new food is arriving tomorrow). And we’re enjoying our peaceful week – just hanging around the pool and working on our tan!
