Very nice. I do love to swim. I just try not to subject too many people to seeing me in a swim suit. :-O

Paula said...

It looks so peaceful, I would love to take a solo swim there.

Jim K said...

we sure could use one of those here.

My sunrise picture from black friday was taken at 6:25am, Aperture F/11, shutter speed 2.5.

Are there alligators in that pool . . . .

Del Webb?? He can't still be alive...

I like the window reflections in e water, and still being able to see how deep the water is.

I think that's where I'd be in your climate, but I prefer water with tropical fish to look at. I'm waiting for someone to make a snorkeling pool.

This looks like a great place to go for a swim. Does one ever get the whole place to themself, or were you just lucky that day?

Olivier said...

j'aime bien cette piscine, avec ce paysage autour, c'est magnifique. Elle s'ouvre en été ?

I looked at the whole article about Stone Creek and it looks so wonderful. What a neat place to live. MB

A wonderful pool with a view! Is it heated to fight the icy winters of Florida?

Bibi said...

Have you seen the film "Cocoon?" :<)

That heated pool looks pretty inviting right now. Makes me want to exercise. But........ will have to settle for a bath :(

Hilda said...

Indoor and heated. If we had anything like this near our place, I'd finally get some real aerobic exercise! Fantastic view too.

I could use one of those at my house. Particularly the 'heated' part.

Allison said...

I have a feeling that after Jacob took this shot he probably couldn't contain himself and performed a perfect cannon ball right into the deep end of that pool!

Bob Poris said...

Our pool indoor pool is heated to 82 degrees which is too cold for many, including us. This is the first community we have lived in where we could not use any pool once the summer was over.

I trust your pool is heated to a comfortable degree for most seniors.

Good luck

Gee! I thought it was always so warm and lovely in Florida that you wouldn't need indoor pools!
OK, I'm backing away slowly now. ;-)

Lois said...

I like indoor pools, but the chlorine fumes always get to me!

Jacob said...

@ Allison - This is a lap pool so there isn't any "deep" end; thank goodness, as I've gone off the deep end too many times already!

@ EG - In this part of Florida it gets really cold...down in the 30s on rare occasions. It's cool today, too. 55 degrees right now and it's only going up to 77!

@ Bibi - Funny! Hey, that's where I'm at!

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - I didn't see any alligators, but one never knows.

@ VP - See reply to EG. And yes.

Tricia said...

Oh, niiice Jacob, very niiice!

Jacob said...

@ Olivier - Thanks. The pool is open all year and so far as I know is kept at a constant temperature all year.

Jacob said...

@ Lily - It appears to not be used that much as yet. The community is still relatively small and there's a huge outdoor pool (also heated) which I'll show sometime soon. I think you would often have the place to yourself.

Looks like a great place to swim!

Jarart said...

Nice pool for swiming laps. Del Web has left his mark everywhere!

Rob and Mandy said...

Nice! Did you have it for you alone?

nopham said...

Gorgeous place!..going for a bigger pool!!!!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Very pretty, nice reflections--but--why is it EMPTY?

cieldequimper said...

Noone there? Great, I'm diving in! Looks like a wonderful place, I love the way you can see far and wide!

Daryl said...

nice shot ... I dont understand lap swimmers .. dancers, I get, but swimmers ... not so much

Jacob said...

@ Mary - I dunno. There is a beautiful spa in the building, too, and that had people in it!

jusdealem said...

Now that is nice! Love indoor heated pools..esp empty ones!

The photo is nice. What I like most;- the lines, the reflection and the view!
