Dreaming of Summer

One of the city's public pools that will open the first week in June. This is South Pool on Shoshone. I like this one's design, even though it "dates" it. This particular pool didn't open on time last year because of what the city called "stubborn leaks."

  3. Very retro! Hopefully it will open this summer! I was just dreaming of summer, too. I was reading an e-mail from my in-laws who are in the Bahamas for a month.

  4. That's a really cool pool entrance. I like the idea of stamping the lettering in the structure to look like a stencil.

  5. We are all dreaming of summer, but I can't complain now! :-) Weather is just fantastic, 17ºC today, it was really hot at the beach.
    Do I see a certain Deco style on the pool building?

  6. This brings back memories of the Burnie Olympic Pool of my youth.

    I'm not sure when Burnie hosted the Olympics, but it must have been before I was born...

  7. That is a great retro building. Our pool was closed a few years ago because the building, built in the 1930s, was falling apart. We will hopefully have a new pool, complete with new rec center in the next few years. I will keep my fingers crossed!

  8. Yeah!! This pool is literally next door! We love swimming here every evening. I am enjoying your blog very much, seeing Boise through another set of eyes is fun. Here are some links to a couple quick sketches I did of the pool.
