The Letchworth pool

The pool at Letchworth is amazing. I've been there a bunch of times with my family - my dad used to go all the time growing up.

The pool is olympic size at least, plus a diving area. The water wasn't even chlorinated. A mini-(e:terry) got us to do flips, because we were too scared. And I managed to swim across the pool in one breath, after trying forever.

Like everything else in state parks, the poolhouse and pool were super 60's. It had to have been built for thousands of people - is it because there used to be more families? The style is actually neat.

Like father, like son

The tortoise and (e:Paul) needed to sun themselves today. The only difference was one was covered in poop and flies. Guess who.

500000 presses

The keyboard attached to the dock at work tracks your keypresses. This week I hit 500000. I want to get it to rollover at a million before I have to move.

Cranes on Main Street

Main Street is much better without cars. Especially when there are giant climbable cranes in the street.

Blueberry picking

After swimming at the cabin, we headed over to a nearby blueberry farm to pick some berries. It was only $1 a pound, so of course we got 15 pounds. (e:paul) and (e:terry) had never been picking before.

Not sure what we're going to do with them yet but it's going to be delicious. Pie? Jam? They're ridiculously good.

Franklinville swimming

While we were at Bass Mountain, (e:paul) talked to Brian found out that him and (e:holly) were also in Franklinville - in a cabin only a few miles away.

So we met up with them at a diner where Holly shocked all the locals. Then we went up to their cabin to swim in the pond. The house was amazing. It was perched on a wooded hill overlooking everything, and had a spring fed pond you could swim in. I wish I could have taken more pictures.

Bass Mountain

(e:yesthatcasey), (e:paul), (e:terry) and I went down to Franklinville for Bass Mountain this week. At first we thought it was going to be lame - the organizers announced the day before we left that there could be no fires, no reentry, no pets or weapons.

The hosts were lame. We almost got kicked out for swimming in the lake, and they ran a terrible restaurant. They banned coolers, although we got it in anyway.

But despite all the rules, the landscape was beautiful and the music was ridiculous. Paul and I danced ourselves exhausted to so many different types of music. We got to hang out with Casey's friend Masumi and her friend Liz. Terry and I tumbled down some hills. It ended up being one of the best weekends of the summer so far.
