You only get one chance to create a first impression and the new swimming pool blew it! There is some clever fancy chip system required us to fetch an armband with this chip on Monday to be able to get into the changing rooms and use the lockers for the swimming yesterday. We had ours, but others didn't. Of course it was more than the old mans life was worth to let anyone in without the chip and there were no spares. That was #1, then there is only 1 parent allowed in with each armband, so I could watch from the cafe, which is other other side of a brick wall (#2) and the windows all round the pool are fenced off as it is still a building site (#3).
All in all the place and the organisation were crap. The old pool was friendly and informal, this was run by the SS.
So in the meantime, here are some Boulder Baby swimming pictures
The last one is Steamboat hot springs
