Longacre Pool

Me at Longacre Park, Indianapolis.

The year was 1973.

I can't say we went swimming there though. It was more like wading or bobbing.

We took plenty of swimming lesson there but I didn't learn to really swim until middle school.

I do remember the water slide they had and it seems like they also had some sort of barrel bolted under the water. Kids would try to stand on it and it would spin or they would swim under it.
I am sure nothing like that would ever be allowed in a pool today.

Holiday Inn

Playing at the hotel pool in Cave City, Kentucky 1977.

The pool was always a big part of staying in a hotel.

I haven't seen one this crowded in recent days though.

In 1977 a pool or a lake were the only water entertainment.

Now we have super cool water slides. I love doing the water parks with my family.

Brett and I swimming.

Did you spot the girl waving?

I am pretty sure that this is the wave pool that was in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Our pond only had a shallow end.

I not exactly sure where this slide is taken but my guess is for Cave City, Kentucky.

I wish Dad would have let me ride this guy.

No date on the slide but it has to be in the 70's.

Cooling off some time in the late 1970' at the Wet'n Wild water park in Florida.

Zooming in you can spot Dad with three boys in tow.
