I need to figure out a better way to tell this story.
I related it to Julie this evening and she was fairly unimpressed.
See, today was filled with thunderstorms and we found out the hard way that the pool closes for an hour once they hear thunder. The hard way, in this case, is finally getting to the pool and hearing thunder right before stepping into the icy shower. The lead-up is what made it so difficult to stomach. But we survived. I even got a nap out of the deal because more Flintstones arrived via Netflix.
And we went swimming later that afternoon. In the rain.
And no, it is not "wetter underwater when you're there when it rains."
And yes, we got kicked out when the lifeguards heard thunder. But at least we got to be in the water for a little more than half an hour.

Glad you injoyed swimming, looking at the time the blog was written I know that you are all alright. Picked up Jannik at the airport yesterday and when Tina phoned last night to check told her he met 2 girls on the plane and is showisng them Berlin. Boy was she shocked, even more shocked when she found out I wasn't telling the truth. Granny
