I expected luxury bathrooms.

I guess they were, in a way.

I wouldn't drop the kids off, not today. When I was a kid, I went to a Learn-to-Swim program during the summer. Now I realize that it was a way for my parents to get my brother and me out of the house, but I didn't understand that, then. We rode our bikes across town for more than a mile to get to the pool, by ourselves. No parent should do that now.

In the pursuit of civic stupidity, Fleishhacker Pool in San Francisco, where I went a couple of times as a kid, no longer exists.

The article gives a paragraph to Barton Springs. It's a good place. I'm way past the time when I want to see topless girls just because, or smoke weed, or need to go there to clean up and take a shower because I'm living in a tent...

Pools are nice, but in the United States, approximately 1 child per day drowns in a backyard pool. I was watching a show about OJ Simpson, and one of his friends was talking about one of OJ's kids drowned.  The guy said he knew how OJ felt, because he also had child that drowned. Holy fark.

It is not a pool, but I want to swim the Aare River in Bern, Switzerland.

The  blue lagoon is not natural, and is pretty disgusting. basically a big geothermal cooling tank with a lot of icelandic body hair between your toes.

Madonna Inn has a nice place to pee. I'm sure someone has dropped kids there at some point.

When I was around 4 years old and living in Germany, my parents took me to a public pool. I was out of sight from them and jumped into the deep end and sank down. I still vividly remember it being quiet, blue and peaceful. I did not realize I might be drowning. I was suddenly yanked out of the water by a local. Probably owe that guy my life. I can see now how it could happen.
