Best Kept Secret

There is a community pool in Key West that is an absolute gem. It's so good that I am not disclosing the name of it and the photo at the right was taken in Tahiti. Why? Because I want it to stay hidden. It is perfectly imperfect - no lane lines, 30 yards long, no clocks or pool toys. Today I had to rescue a lounge chair from the bottom of the pool, and during my brief swim I had to dodge a sea bird who needed a calm respite from the storms of this week. The lifeguards fed him fish. That doesn't happen at other pools and I love it. The best part is that you can't do a typical workout (I mean really - who knows their 60 yard times?) so the pressure is off - you just swim. And a bonus is that it is right on the ocean. If you are coming to Key West I will let you in on the secret.
