Case of the Missing Swimming Pool

Good Grief! I went to the swimming pool yesterday only to find it drained of water and abandoned. No sign, no message, no people around to explain why. Now I have to get in touch with the city to find out what's going on Seriously, my outdoor swimming options are becoming fewer and fewer AND I pay for this!

I consoled myself by going for a nature walk yesterday, but couldn't today. It's so hot and so humid;  like walking around in a steam bath. The thunderstorms, instead of cooling things off are are making it worse. I conked out today and ended up walking at the mall, just like I do in the winter.

I know some hotels let non guests use their pool for a fee, so I'm going to check that out. When I worked in downtown Toronto I use to swim at the Sheraton. They had a very cool combination indoor/outdoor pool with glass walls.  I just hope they have something like that in Hamilton. The only outdoor pool left close to me is about the size of a bath tub and there are way too many kids. Not that I don't like children I just don't like them dive bonbing on my head.

I am so itchy. Scratch! Scratch!

How strange about the public pool? Why not just tell the hotels you are doing a report on MS accessibility and local hotel pools? :)

Don't ja love it when the city suddenly takes action without any respect to those who PAY for services affected? Grrr
