SLW and I were just in our saltwater pool, the temp in the shade is in the 80's, the pool was 90...aaahhhhhhhhh!

But we still have a lot of unpacking... :mad::D

I finished 5 acres at 42" a swathe, and you two were in the pool?

GET TO WORK! :mad:

I was getting my boat ready to go in the water.

We'll hit the pool at sunset.

Not really, and it isn't what you think. The salt is converted into chlorine so it isn't as intensive a maint. issue as a regular pool. The water doesn't taste "salty", it's just a chemical thing. The water (and I hate to admit this) feels softer. :rolleyes::D Sooo smooth...LOL!!!

I would have liked to have gone to Siesta Key beach (Ranked #2!!!! by Dr. Beach!!:D) today but since it's a friggen holiday we would have needed to be there by 8am to get decent parking. We'll go next weekend.

Forget unpacking and enjoy the pool. I have heard of Siesta Beach and plan to make it down that way in the fall or winter. How far are you'll from the Gulf?

Hot and humid in the big city. The kids are playing stickball and we've just opened a fire hydrant.

After a game of milkcrate-hung-on-the-telephone-pole basketball I'll be grilling on my cut-in-half 55-gallon drum barbeque.

You got a milk-crate!? That's not fair!:(

Great to hear it ! We had to go inside for a while...its raining! Been thinking of retrofitting my pool to salt water! Way cheaper on chemicals and softer water! Maybe next year.

It's almost 100 here today. The rest of the family all went to the lake to play in the water
and boat. I elected to stay behind and hold down the fort (under the AC). The couch
sure has felt good this afternoon. I've been re-fighting WWII all day with Charles Heston
and Robert Mitchum. We are about to attack at Midway, so I have to get back to that.

I keep telling her that. :D And we did today.

Siesta is about 4-5 miles from the house, it depends on traffic and the bridge.
