I really miss swimming but decided not to go to the pool this winter because being in a warm, moist indoor pool feels like to much risk of contacting the virus. It is great that your parents are in such good shape. I have always made it a point to swim and do water aerobics and I do believe that is the fountain of youth. I can do so much more exercising in water and not hurt the next day.

I have never eaten Margherita pizza. I only want the nice thick "Sunday sauce" that everyone uses on pizza here.

My Dad won't go in the pool either if there's someone else in it even though he knows the pool chemicals absolutely nullify the virus. He laughs and says its just his thing... and does stretches and pushups by the pool until they get out.

I'd be scared in an indoor environment too- they say the virus can live on contact surfaces like the grab bars people use to get in and out. The strong Florida sun sanitizes very effectively too its said.

The swim club I belong to did open the pool this summer, but someone was constantly spraying the grabbars with bleach. They also sprayed down the chaise lounges and chairs as soon as a person. We did not use pool noodles, because they can hold the virus.

The chemicals in the water do kill the virus but that does not protect you if someone else gets too close to you in the pool. I am afraid to try an indoor pool.

My neighborhood pool did a really good job with safety and cleaning this summer; they are probably going to do a few tweaks for next summer but it worked really well -- very few complaints (outside of the few people that complain about everything) and no outbreaks that we're aware of. They reduced the number of people; made a reservation system for two hour slots, made everything touchless for getting in and out, did temp checks and rearranged all the chairs/seating so that groups were isolate; you could only interact with your group and they added had extra shifts for the lifeguards (our lifeguards are all teens) so that they could have 2 cleaning each pool plus had the normal number of lifeguards for guarding lifes, and only allowed floaties for the little kids. They also did one morning a week for differently abled and one morning a week for higher risk people. I was really pleased with their approach.

I was surprised that our pool even opened. Many in Ohio did not. Ours is private and you buy stock in the club and then pay a yearly fee. What happened a lot is that people came in with lots of friends and the pool would be overcrowded. This year, they did not allow any parties like that. So it was easy to maintain distance from others.

There are one or two groups that acted like everything was the same as always. They would get together for discussions in the pool. When they asked me to join in, I just said Hi, and continued my solitary swim or workout.

Two of my sisters usually go with me and we stayed to ourselves. I am hoping that by next summer there is a vaccine and we can have many more of our normal parties and activities.

I like bears but I like them further away. Like I loved the fat bear contest out of Alaska a few weeks ago (my choice won!)
