We had a swim meet in Louisville, KY which is not very far from us, over the past 3 days. The first day we were stormed out with lightning and thunder, rain in the morning on Friday and good weather to finish through Saturday.
I wanted to share the pictures I took because the venue is really interesting.
The swim meet was at Lakeside Pool. It's a neighborhood private pool made in a quarry. The limestone sides were beautiful. The quarry is divided up into sections and pools. I took most of the pictures from the far end. We sat with our team against the high limestone rock wall at that end on grass.
There is a walkway all of the way around the water. You can see that there is a 25yd warm up pool right in front of us and then the long course (50M) pool just beyond that where the competition was.
But on the left you can see basically roped off open water. Across the way are some pavilions and buildings housing restrooms, a concession stand, 2 more pools with a high dive and more sitting areas. The pictures with Kathryn by the water were taken right in front of where we were sitting at the side of the warm up pool. You can see that there is about a 6 foot wall of limestone before you even get to the water on our side.

It was one of the most beautiful and interesting swim meets we've been to.

I'm pretty sure that is the most amazing pool I have ever seen. I want to go there really bad. I don't think I would have any problem waking up early to swim in that pool.
