Stay Cool - Vintage Photo Friday

Temperatures will be topping 100 degrees in Los Angeles this weekend.  In some places, it will be even hotter!  Ugh!  I thought summer was over.  How can I possibly even think about  knitting and/or crocheting a cozy sweater in this kind of weather? Double Ugh!
The Los Angeles area is blessed with a lot of swimming pools.  This is an excellent way to stay cool and even swim a bit for exercise.  Here are some fancy-shmancy pools in the L.A. area.  I wish we had a pool like one of these!

We never had a pool when I was growing up.  When it got too hot, we'd head down to Santa Monica Beach or Malibu and hit the waves.  Luckily, I had plenty of friends and relatives with swimming pools.

Hydrate and stay cool, my friends.
