The new pool

There was excitement in the air.

A hint of anticipation after the endless rain and grey clouds.

At last, they could go out and enjoy themselves!

They gathered up their friends and children, packed their swimming things…

… and set off to find the new pool.

Rumour had it that it was large, set in beautiful surroundings and that the water was just the right temperature.





Come on in – the water’s lovely!

  3. Marvellous! Water birds take advantage of – even delight in – fresh stretches of water, however temporary they may be. Round here swans glide gracefully in fields normally occupied by sheep!

  4. Well – you had me fooled! Think I’ll leave the swimming to the ducks and geese! Now – my Grandchildren would find that “pool” very inviting!

  18. Oy, what a large, swampy puddle. I guess you Swedes develop a sense of humor, when the winter is dark, murky and never ending.

  19. Ohhhh what my dogs would do to go runnning through that water – ducks be damned!

    December 1, 2009 at 12:06

  20. It cracks me up that ducks will settle for any old puddle of water!
