Sunrises are beautiful. Sunsets are gorgeous. Mountaintop views of eternal skies are amazing. And infinite, dark, starry heavens in the middle of the desert are absolutely mind-blowing. But my favorite way to view the sky is on my back. Floating in the ocean, in a pool, in a hammock, on a patch of grass or sand in the early morning or late afternoon hours. I love to observe the vast, calm, blue from a reclined position.
What a special place. Your descriptors remind me of one of our favorite hiking trails! On paper, there are way better ones in the Boulder, CO area.. but the charm of its small parking lot making us always wonder if we'll even have the opportunity to snag a spot along the 20-minute out-of-the-way windy drive, and sentimentality of it being "our" trail will always bring us back when visiting. Thanks for sharing!
A lovely meditation on the pool and its serene and spacious associations. Thank you, Vickee. Your piece reminded me of the special place that pools and swimming have had, and still have, in my life. Hope your week is going well, Glen
