The water can be cold in the pool, even with solar heating. That's why they cover the pool every night with a solar blanket. Sometimes the guys who lap swim just before the water aerobics class complain that the pool is too warm. Then the life guard leaves the cover off. Those guys are nuts.
But the showers are hot. What a treat to be swimming outside in January! I go with Dianne from the Women's Circle - we create accountability for each other.
The Water Aerobics class expands and contracts with the weather. But there are a few hearty souls that are there every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It wasn't hard to learn the routine. And really, as long as you're moving, that's what counts. The perky pool lifeguard keeps things upbeat with good music and a cheerful attitude.
The Honoka'a community pool is only a couple blocks from my house. I walk there.
There's a small group of dedicated swimmers who have formed the Friends of the Honoka'a Pool. They raise money for renovations, request funds from the County Council for improvements, and volunteer to do jobs around the pool. Sometimes that is what it takes to keep a facility viable.
After class, some of us float around swapping book and movie recommendations and recipes. I loved this one - tasty and easy to make.
