Clouds and the pool

 

Back a few weeks ago, I took these pics through the windows of the Lakeview Center. Here's a view of one of the parking lots and part of the playground...but what most caught my eye were the reddish leaves on the dogwoods. First color I've seen of fall. Though a lot of leaves have begun to drop.


You might say the skies were moody, or at least misty!


Same view, without the balcony fencing. Which do you prefer?


Without fenced balcony?


...or with the balcony?



And I noticed the pool is closed and tarped up for the winter. It will be 8 months before it comes out again. Considering how short the season is for swimmers, I dare say the serious swimmers are enjoying the gymn of the YMCA, which has a heated indoor pool. Maybe I'll try it one of these days.


Today's quote:

In our world, there is always someone in need of our best efforts to rally a group of helpers and healers.

  1. Hello,

    Pretty views of the lake, I like both with and without the fencing. The Y's indoor heated pool sounds nice! Have a happy Sunday and a great new week!

    1. Yes the pool inside will start to sound much better these days. I just hate chlorine scent. Thanks for your comments!

    1. I'm glad someone came up with this idea, used to have ugly water all winter, which needed to be skimmed or drained in the spring. Tarps must be heavy to put across the water...hope nobody had to be in the pool to get it covered.

  3. Without the balcony is better.
    Our skies the last several mornings start out foggy but then clear up.

    1. I agree, most of the time. But then I come back and change my mind again.

  4. Without the fence, particularly the first pair.

  5. I like the geometry of the fence as a contrast.

    1. It does make the softness of the clouds have a sharp stopping point.
