Summer's Last Blast!

Last weekend - Labor Day weekend
-- the official end of summer!
Boo hoo !

We had one of the best summers!
While I worked until about 1 or 2 pm every day, Maddy
slept late, took the pup for a walk, tidied up the house
and watched a movie or show on Netflix.
Add to that her zoo crew duties and some sports camps
and the summer flew by!

Mads and I spent a ton of time at the pool -- not during the heat
of the day getting all sunburned, but instead in the evenings,
and we often had the whole pool to ourselves or shared it with
only a few others.

The last couple weeks, the weather changed and it was a
little chilly for August, but we were determined
and continued to hit the pool, even
with its shorter hours after school started.
We became such regulars that if we were a little late, the lifeguards
started calling to make sure we were on our way! :)

Labor Day was the last day of pool-time fun
 and sadly, our pool (club) is closing forever.

On one of the last nights there, I was
able to get these silhouette photos
with my iPhone of some folks going off the high
diving board!

We will really miss that place!

So fun! Our pool has the same policy...Labor Day is the last day. But then September comes in hot and we need the pool then more than we do in early June! :)

Amazing photos, Janet. I don't know about your area, but it's blazing hot again in MI. A pool would be awfully nice right about now.

None of our pools are open until Labor Day. They all close when school starts because they can't get enough lifeguards with everyone back in school. Too bad that your pool is closing forever!!! Soak up all those sun rays and warm days before that fall wind blows in.
