What I did on my summer vacation...
No, this is not the Catty pool, but I wish it was
It dawned on me this weekend that I use to wish that I had days off in the summer and now I had them, but I was basically not doing anything with them. Some days, I write this blog on my day off, or do research for the articles. But being off so long is starting to be like when I was a kid on summer vacation, I am starting to get bored.
I don't have the money to go places and do the things that I would like to do or use to do when I was working full time and took vacation days. So I thought on Tuesday, what can I do to make me feel like, hey ! a day off in the summer. So I went to the Catty Pool. Pool prices are kind of ouchy. $6.00 for resident. But it was a very hot day, the pool wasn't too crowded and the water was nice; so I guess it was worth it.
I got there at 2:00 PM, so I didn't get one of the lounge chairs, but that was okay. I sat where I use to when I was a kid, and I read. It was a good day, no one pooped in the pool and now, I am almost done with the book I am reading.
The pool is not the same as when I was kid. I miss the deep water. I know this is probably a lot safer but there is something about not touching the bottom of the pool that I miss.
I am going to have to try to find more things we can do that are cheap or free so that I can say, this is what I did on my summer vacation.
In the meantime this is just....another day in Catasauqua.
