Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 274: Swimming on a Rooftop in Austin

The Hilton Austin Downtown, where we stayed during our recent holiday visit, has a nicely-equipped health club and spa on the 8th floor, including a heated outdoor salinated pool on the rooftop overlooking the city skyline. I took advantage of the lap pool on twice during our trip and enjoyed having access to a straight pool of a decent length, despite the fact that the pool temperature was a wee bit too warm for lap swimming (even for me!).

On both Thursday and Friday mornings, I had only one other companion in the pool -- an older woman doing some water exercises and some leisurely laps -- and we each had plenty of room for our respective workouts.

Even though I'm not focusing on a swimming goal for this year, I still really appreciate having access to a pool when we travel so that I can continue to incorporate swimming into my workout routine and options.
