Outdoor Pools of 2017

Okay, I am waaayyyyy behind on blogging.  It seems so much easier to put up a quick IG post.  Anyway, carrying on my tradition of the past few years, here are the outdoor pools I swam in during 2017.  Outdoor swimming is one of my fave things to do!

A new pool for us - the Janet Evans Swim Center
in Fullerton, CA. Perfect sunny afternoon Disneyland break!
Another new one - Belmont pool in Long Beach CA.
For a "temporary" facility, it was pretty sweet.
Thanks Erin for meeting us there for another sunny swim!

Alga Norte Aquatic Center in Carlsbad CA.
A frequent haunt, made it here a few times this year.
This picture was from Betty Epic Camp!

Kona pool. We don't actually get much swimming
in here, as we're usually in the ocean!
Our "local" pool in Crofton...
it's only 20 yards so I don't hit up the lap swim
(too MANY turns), but I use it for water running in the summer.
Kitsilano Beach pool (or Kits pool for those in the know)
in Vancouver.  One of the most stunning pools in the world.
150 yards right on the ocean, overlooking downtown.

Another gorgeous pool in Vancouver - across the harbour
from Kits.  This is Second Beach pool, on the edge of Stanley Park.
Another one sort of close to home:
Kin Pool in Nanaimo.  It's getting busier during
lap swim as people are starting to discover it.

We stumbled on this one in Agassiz BC on the way to
ITU Long Distance World Champs in Penticton.
Super friendly lifeguards!

Squeezed this in under the wire on Dec. 30:
Palm Desert Aquatic Center.

This is the parking lot for the Palm Desert AC;
each spot has it's own palm tree for shade!
