    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

    saltwater pool? Thats a new concept.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    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. :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.

    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.
