Pool Party

It’s going to be 95 degrees today and 98 degrees tomorrow.  Needless to say, I’d rather be cooling off in a pool instead of running around to appointments in the steamy city.  Since I can’t play hookey, I’m hoping that these pool pictures will help me think cool thoughts.  Except for the last one of course.  Enjoy!

    Sadly, it’s hotter in Dubai but I’m headed back to JFK tomorrow. Fortunately, Fire Island awaits…

    Cool series … like the hot ending.

    I hear ya about a steamy city. Yesterday I felt like I was melting in the sidewalk … can’t imagine what today will be like. My summer city survival trick: I co-opt coverups and use them as streetwear. If you choose wisely no one can tell they are supposed to cover a bathing suit and you stay a lot cooler.

    Of course, there is another option: come to Los Angeles! It is going to be a cool 70* and sunny. Mary

    Living in Los Angeles, the swimming pool is a luxury we treasure. What I love about most of these pools, is the green lawn that goes right up to the edge, adding a cool and refreshing invitation to dive right in. Fabulous!!

    I think I like the last one…lol

    Everyone seems to be on vacation this week except me! I’ll be content sitting at my desk and looking at these pools. Could somebody pass a mint julep?
