Dreaming of Swimming Pools
This past weekend was both sunny and hot all over the bay area and Nic's parents were in town to witness the rare phenomenon of Summer in San Francisco. On Saturday we strolled around Sausalito after a leisurely breakfast at our favorite spot (Fred's) and when we stopped for a cup of iced tea at an outdoor cafe we started ogling the impressive array of sports cars and convertibles that all of Marin county seemed to be showing off on the sunny day. Seeing all the sports cars, Nic's mom asked a fun question, "If you had all the money in the world what fun and ridiculous car or toy would you consider buying?" Nic opted for an Aston Martin and I admitted that I could care less about cars as long as they are functional and relatively fuel efficient, I just want to have a swimming pool.
All I need along side it is a little pool house :)
Building the pool on top of the pool house is a great way to economize space in a small back yard
I promise to invite everyone over for poolside dinner parties
The view is a "nice to have" but not a "need to have"
What do you want when you grow up?
