20 Below: Swim Goggles

I almost forgot that today was Tuesday. Oops. I guess I was still in long weekend mode!

Yesterday I learned that there’s a 50m outdoor pool just a 15 minute walk from where I live. Yeah – how did I miss that one, right? (I mean, I knew it was there but I assumed it was a regular 25m pool.) So last night I ventured out and I’m so glad I did because I had a great swim!

One of the things I love about the sport of swimming is that it is quite an affordable sport – all you need is a swimsuit and goggles. These are lightweight and require minimal storage which is an added bonus in my opinion. These look like my goggles except mine are navy (gasp!).

Another thing I learned – there’s an entrance fee for the public outdoor pools in London, Ontario. I wasn’t expecting this because I’ve always taken advantage of Toronto’s free access outdoor pools. How about in your neighbourhood? Are outdoor pools free of charge?

    I have the same goggles but in royal blue. haha. Remember the time that Mr. Brian found goggles and asked all the campers if they were theirs? hahaha. That pic has to be somewhere! Classic. When I used to lifeguard in Cornwall, afternoon swims during the week were free and then evening and weekends cost around $2.50. (I’m sure it’s gone up since those days!)
