192 The Swimming Hole

Day three of our three-day celebration was filled with swimming at the 5th Avenue Swimming Club. As a child I loved swimming all-day, every-day in the giant reservoir-turned-coop-swim-club. I would pretend I was a mermaid in the ocean or a dolphin in the sea. My parents continued the membership so my girls and their cousins can experience the freedom of swimming without boundaries.

The whole day, while the kids swam, I was captivated my the patterns and textures made by the water and it's reflections. It reminds me of an abstract painting.
