Stone Creek outdoor pool

This pool is so big, I couldn't get it all in the photo...it continues to stretch off to the right. Stone Creek also has a large inside pool, relatively shallow, for exercises, swimming laps, etc.

I really like the palm trees island in the pool!

Jacob, on top left of my blog page you have a search space, just write 'Heroes at sunset' and click.

Those palm trees are lovely and so is the pool!

A swimming pool with an island, how fantastic!

So envious of wonderful pool and presumably warm weather! Feels permanently cold here in Bath. Thanks for nice comments on our blog by the way and love your photos!

Lothiane said...

Oh nice! I wish I was there right now, instead of in snowy Oslo. :)

I like the island, and the pool is really huge.
Please allow a bit of envy for places and weather...

Tricia said...

The water is so blue and the place is like a paradise!

How uncommon with an islet in the midst, and the shallow one will do for me, LOL. The blue waters are so inviting.

Jacob said...

April - you did fine...your comment came through with no problem.

Thanks to all for visiting and commenting!

Beautifull!!
I love those palm trees.
It seems warm there.
It is still cold here in Japan.

Karen said...

What a great pool.. Wish I had one like it close to me. The island is unique. Might be fun to swim around it and pretend to be a shark.

A question from a northerner who may be looking to escape the cold winters. Is this a development you could find yourself living in? I guess the answer would be no because you don't want any more transplants moving into your beautiful area!! Your pictures have been quite inviting though.

Olga said...

Ahhhhhhh... great picture, great reflection. I rather like that the pool didn't fit in fully - leaves place for your imagination to stretch it as big as you like! (Thanks for visiting my blog!)

Jacob said...

Antjas...Oh yes! We've been looking seriously at this development and would move there in a heartbeat if we could sell our house. But nothing is selling right now and the area is inundated with foreclosures...it's a sad situation.

B Squared said...

I'd hate to be the one cleaning that one.

Jacob said...

You're so right, BSq! I'm about ready to fill ours in, but that would cost as much as a new pool, so I'm in that space between a rock and a hard place!

*¤ஐ» Battie°»ஐ¤*° said...

I need one!
Just for the summer in Dubai
it is HOT!

Antjas said...

Jacob, I see we're between the same rock and a hard place. We'd love to fill our pool in since the kids outgrew it. You at least get to see a nice blue color all year round. Currently I'm looking at a black cover, black water bags and what will become brackish water until Memorial Day when it's finally warm enough to open it up.

Jacob said...

Antjas - that's true about the nice blue color, but it's a lot of work to keep it looking nice and blue. And if it isn't the water oaks dropping leaves, it's yellow pollen, pine needles, or other pine tree droppings...Yikes!

Memorial Day will be here pretty soon. Won't it?
