    Today I went to the pool. Although I am a woman, I usually use swim shorts and a top for swimming. This time I tried out my new shorts. I actually don't bought them for swimming, cause they're big, wide cargo trunks, but I tought I can be funny. And indeed it was very funny! I...

    I Love To Swim

    I am actually sitting in the pool right now. It is so hot (100) there is no other place to be right now if you want to be outside and not pass out from heat exhaustion.

    Peaceful Laps

    Last summer I lived in an apartment complex with a pool.  I'd deliberately go at times with no people, and spend hours doing laps.I loved it.  Cool water around me, brassy blue sky above; my arms and legs in strong sync as I moved back and forth across the quiet water.Paradise...

    Swimming is seriously my favorite thing to do.

    I've always loved being in the water and it's always been my happy place. When I was younger I would spend 8+ hours in the pool. I also swim competitively and it's the best workout/thrill/sport/pass time ever. I just wish I was a mermaid sometimes haha.

    I never learned to swim. I could get by on my back just fine, but as for putting my face in the water without holding my nose...it wasn't going to happen. I always felt silly, but eventually I just got used to it and assumed I would never learn to swim. This summer my kids and I...

    I Love To Swim

    Other than volleyball, I'm never really active on land. I don't do running or anything. I like swimming though. The water calms me. It seems like my family is naturally geared for swimming. I'm not hairy, and I have sufficient fat to keep me warm in the cold water even though I'm...

    I Learned At An Early Age

    I learned to swim at an early age. My father was stationed in Hawaii and was a scuba instructor for awhile out there. We use to visit Sharks Cove a lot and that is where my siblings and me first learned to swim. Thats something huh, learning to swim in the beaches off Hawaii?

    I love swimming. It takes things off my mind

    and it's very relaxing. I used to be a swimmer in high school. Now that those days are over I like to go lap swimming. It's a great exercise for me.

    I wish I could go swimming right now. Water just seems to wash away all of my troubles.  My sadness, anger, depression...it all goes away once the two worlds are separated by that thin layer of liquid.  It just seems to melt away, and that's something I need right now.
