One of the best things about our little getaway was being able to basically wear a swimsuit nonstop. Our suite opened directly out onto the pool which meant I visited it like it was my job. I've always been a water baby, something handed down by my dad, who had been a competitive swimmer, a scuba diver, wind surfer, and also my first swim coach at the ripe old age of 3 years old, sparking a long term my interest and participation in competitive swimming and other wateresque activities.
Whenever I have the opportunity to swim, I take it. There's nothing more calming or reinvigorating, and ironically to some extent, whenever I find myself weightless in the water, I tend to rediscover my footing.
I'll definitely be spending the next few warmish months pool hunting in Palm Springs...
