Swimming


When I was in college, I would go to my classes in the morning and when I came home (at my parents' home), I would go swimming. Even as a young child, I loved to swim. It was one of the reasons my parents decided to get a pool. They saw how much I loved the water.

It was something about the quiet of the house, swimming alone, the simple back and forth, relaxing yet moving my body in the water.

It's been a while since I swam at my parents, but I did so just recently. After taking Penny to the bark park, I decided to go for a swim and it was wonderful. After the first shock of cold water. You know that second step into a pool? If you can get past that second step, you'll be fine. It took me a little while, but I made it into the water.

I did a couple of laps and then realized someone was watching me! A brown and tan striped cat was on the other side of the pool enclosure. I don't know how long it was there, but when it saw me watching it, the cat got down on his hunches. Then it ran as I got closer to the edge. I turned around in the pool and swam to the other. By the time I turned around again, the cat was back out and looking at me. Curiosity and the cat, you know the story.

So, the cat and I did this game for about 7 laps, then I splashed him with some water and he took off. :)
