I suspect this is the best deal I can get, this pool. Although it only has four regular lanes (and one walking lane), and although those lanes are certainly in demand, I suspect they are less in demand than the ones in Sinsheimer pool,which is much larger. I mean I suspect I can more easily get a lane to myself. And the pool at Cuesta, again quite a bit larger, is not even open on weekends and its public hours for lap swimming are really limited. The pool at the new big gym in SLO only has two lanes, which have to be reserved ahead. There is a little hope in that a new pool is being constructed in Arroyo Grande. I wonder if I will have access to it. I think it's part of Cuesta.
After my swim this morning i went to the Coffee Bean. Had a bagel and iced coffee and sat and read. I had dropped a book outside on a table, with its bookcrossing label and in a plastic bag, before I came in, and I watched surreptitiously when a woman came to that table, found the book, fingered it, picked it up, set it down, and eventually took it with her. I wonder if she will read it. I wonder if she will enter her find in bookcrossing.
