this summer my latibule has consisted of tidal pools. swimming pools in the ocean.
i have about 6 in my "secrets of a capetown kid" pocket book. the ocean you see, is unpredictable and when the dear ol table cloth drapes the mountain, she is often too rough to swim in. tidal pools are sort of immune to these frivolous fluctuations. they offer to replenish your salt water veins and rewild your messy hair, to clear your head and hug your skin cells on ANY day.
its about as good as it gets really :)
here are some of my pools in the sea (the first and last are not mine-but i wish they were :P)
