40 Pools

Celebrating a Big Birthday with 40 Swims

Not a Pool: AquaTech Alameda

on June 1, 2014

breath holdingMy handsome and brilliant nephew recently added to his list of accomplishments by getting me and his mother in free to a pool! Two days shy of hitting the six-month mark, he squeaked in for a free infant swim session with his two adult buddies at AquaTech Swim School in Alameda.

While it’s true this pool is 25 yards, it’s kept at 88 degrees, making it “not a pool” in my book. However, it was perfect for the pod of infants who showed up at mid-day last Wednesday.

Little O. enjoyed being tugged around atop a large, duck-shaped float, using his limbs to splash as much as possible, and making eyes at the scantily clad babies sharing pool time with him. He didn’t fuss at all until the swim ended and he had to be stripped of his swim diaper and bathing suit. His coordination and strength have improved markedly in the short time since his last swim, and once again he made his aunt very proud.
