So, as I explained in the post above, sometimes the City of Staunton changes things and doesn't post it on the website. They have a website. It's a fairly comprehensive website. I have used it to find out lots of useful things. But they don't seem to update it,
As far as the pool goes, they have a dry erase sandwich board for that. so....for someone who has no car and takes the trolley, this can suck. Cause you don't just walk to the pool. I did that when I was young and I ran up to the Clougherty Pool in the Doherty Park at the top of Bunkah. Here. Have some history from the always fabulous Helen O'Neil. Grab a towel and some change for the ice cream truck "Bye Mum!" and I was off till I was waterlogged or more hungry than an ice cream could satisfy.
But now? Towels, book, water, snack, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat...and the list goes on.
I set my alarm, did my morning chores, packed my bag and Tom drove me to the pool. I could walk it, it's just under a mile and a half. But *cue whiny voice* it's hhhhhooottttt and I have a bbbbaaagg.
As we pull up I say to Tom "Where are the people? Why is the pool cover on?" Tom puts on the "Down South" voice and tells me "Ah don't know".
I get out of the car and read the sandwich board "Pool closed for season due to lack of guard".
HELLO??? I was a lifeguard. Sure it was literally twenty years ago. And kids in Rocky Nook said I was the meanest lifeguard evah. But they didn't even ask.
So now I am sitting in front of the AC, pouting. I can't even do what we did when I was little and sit in the yard with the garden hose. Tom took it and all the yard tools to go help a friend at their new place.
