One would think that after an afternoon of such rambunctious play the next thing to be had would be a good and early bedtime. But nooo. Next stop: the Teves Memorial Aqua Center, just next door to the Perdices Coliseum, for some lap swimming. (Photos were taken on a sunny day last week, together with the rubberized red running track pictures.)
This is the view of the 8-lane main pool and the diving pool in the foreground from the 20-feet diving platform. I did go up to the 30-feet platform but the photo I got from that height is markedly skewed. Most likely because I only used one hand to point and shoot as the other hand was holding on tightly to the railing.
The diving platforms, in ten foot increments. Of course, my going up to the forty-feet level was out of the question. ;p
the diving pool
Went swimming at the Aqua Center again today but the main pool was off -limits to all swimmers because it had just been treated with a chemical. Chlorine, maybe? So we all had to use the 18-feet-deep diving pool! Uh-oh. I kept my eyes shut most of the time underwater so I wouldn't be intimidated by how deep it was.
