The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.
there were maybe 25 people at the pool at 4pm on a Sunday, mostly parents with children.
oddly enough, lots of international types who weren’t speaking the English so good — but no hordes of unattended kids whose parents had dumped them at the pool 8 hours earlier.
the kiddy pool was gi-normous (15′ x 30’ish) and sloped like a beach from inches to about two feet deep.
don’t get me wrong — the pool wasn’t gleaming (i wouldn’t put sparklet down on the floor of the shower room) but it was certainly no worse than the neighborhood pool where i grew up.
and, for DC, that’s pretty outstanding.
