My Swimming Lesson at Shuswap Falls RV Park

On our third day at Shuswap Falls RV Park, I wanted to drive the golf cart to the pool, but my feet couldn’t reach the pedals, darn it.

So I had to let a taller person do the driving while I hung out the back.

I was so excited to be going to the pool!

First thing, I got a safety lesson and was told about the pool rules.

I tested the water temperature with my hand.

Then, with my foot.

Brrrr! That water was cold! I almost changed my mind about the whole thing!

But Annie coaxed me back.

She said it might be easier if I eased myself in on the steps at the shallow end. I took my water gun with me as a security measure.

The shallow end is for sissies, so I decided to go to the deep end, where I spotted a rather large wave.

This was rather disconcerting, so I asked Leslie, the CEO of Canadian Only, for some encouragement.

At one point, I thought she was going to push me in!

I planted myself at the water’s edge and aimed my water gun at anyone tryin’ to fool with me. (My right foot got wet!)

By that time, Annie was already in the pool. She came over to have a photo taken with me.

She tried to get me into the pool, too. It took a while to convince me.

She became quite persuasive.

I gotta admit, she did try to gently ease me in.

We actually ended up having quite a lot of fun!

I don’t know why, but swimming makes me thirsty.

The best part was chillin’ on the deck chairs afterwards.

I loved my vacation at Shuswap Falls RV Park!
