I was a competitive swimmer for 10 years. For me, that tight feeling your skin gets after being in the pool will always mean summer.  I haven’t swam in years, even just laps at the gym, but seeing the new Olympic Aquatics Centre in London makes me want to start again. That pool looks amazing.

These photos seem almost to perfect to be real.

    OOOH my gosh, I used to be a swimmer too! My husband and I finally got punchcards to swim laps during the week, and I couldn’t be more excited. That’s an amazing aquatic center. My favorite swimming is always outside, though. The water just completely sparkles.

      I was just talking about this with someone else – aren’t most Olympic pools outside? I love swimming on a sunny day too – the way the wavy shadows and light play on the bottom of the pool is just lovely.
