On Teacher's Recipes, Diane commented about how lovely it must be to have the pool. It's wonderful and I so enjoy my gentle up and back, up and back for however long I want.
I used to belong to a local health club, just to use the pool. However, it was expensive and became not worth it so I discontinued membership. However, I have been missing the swimming.
I thought I would just look up our local public pool(s) to see how much/when/etc and had a pleasant surprise.
Firstly I can now get into the public swimming times free. That's right, totally free. Being over 60 has some advantages. I have to go down with proof that I am over 60 and proof that I live in the borough. Of course, I will have to pay for car parking but I can swallow that. It's got to be better than the health club fees and I could find out about buses, I suppose, should the need arise.
The second is that while I am not keen on swimming at busy times (won't do it, in fact), the first swim starts at 6:30 with an early bird public session. For me that's well into the morning!!!
I think I have myself a plan!!!
