As a child June 1 was always a special day...it was the day that we were allowed to start swimming every day. We would head to the lake to our favorite swimming hole and enjoy the day. In today's world we have the luxury of swimming year around. We don't go to the lake but enjoy modern swimming pools. We found a few that we wanted to share with you...not sure I could swim in some of them.
