After a bit, it actually got so warm that it seemed (gasp) HOT! Well, OK, maybe not really hot hot, but you know, surely warm enough to go in the pool. At least the dogs thought so. The air was in the mid 80's and the pool was a semi-comfortable 72F. Sure beats the heck out of the 56F the water was a couple of weeks ago when we had all that rain, and wind.
I'd been waiting for a good chance to play with the new camera (an Olympus Stylus 1050SW) Hubby got me for Christmas, and this was the perfect opportunity. This isn't a camera to replace my beloved Nikon, but something to use in addition to it. This new little toy is water proof, and can even take video underwater. Here are a couple of my clips from today. Not bad for not actually being in the water with the pups. (Hey, I said the water was warm enough for them, not me!) Here is Kookie Kona, trying to get at the warm water coming from the solar return....Jill brings the ball in, Jack snags it, and Kona gets kookie again.
Harley up close and personal.
After a good swim, everyone needs a healthy little snack! Here I am sharing an apple with Harley, Jack, Kona and Jill (you can't see Jill, but she is sitting in the water in front of me...just her nose is barely visible.)
