Swimming to Beat the Heat

We went to my BIL's home in Chester last Sunday and Dad went with us. 
I decided to take my first (maybe my last) plunge in the swimming pool.  I wasn't  conscious wearing my  swim suit there because   there were no other people but us.
My son got so comfortable in jumping the water.  I think, with proper training,  he would be able to learn how to swim soon.  The  problem is that, they both don't like to have a swimming lesson lol.  
Glad that Dad went with us because he got a lot of exercise that day.
 
We finished our outing with shooting practice.  I was so impress with my father-in-law because at his age of 90, he is still a dead eye when it comes to shooting the target.  Will  post that separately hehehe.

  15. I am no swimmer, so I do not go n ear water. However, if I had a pool, I would at least hang my feet in as it is terribly hot in Texas.

  22. We used to have a pool in S.Africa but I am happy not to have one now. It just became too expensive with the upkeep. Looks like you had a really fun day though. Diane
