We've been delinquent in our blog responsibilities, but hopefully this will be the first of many contributions. Part of the problem is figuring out exactly what to write. I had been thinking about it yesterday when someone sent me the perfect entry.
One of our favorite things to do this summer was to go swimming on the Floating Lady. It's a barge that they converted into a swimming pool and parked at the docks out in front of our house (right where Atlantic Ave meets the water). It was perfect to have a swimming pool within walking distance. They even poured sand to make two sand soccer fields (with nets) and a few volleyball courts. It's not Waimea but it was as close as we have ever had here- complete with outdoor showers and picnic tables. Also, no mesh lining required!
A friend (from Utah) noticed this picture from an article in Architectural Record magazine. We aren't sure why Amy didn't make it into the picture, but the rest of us did :)
