A Salty Labor Day Swim With Kimchee
I have sort of grown to sort of like this new pool. It's the saltwater part of it that I have grown to sort of like.
The water being salty renders added buoyancy. Not ocean-like saltwater added buoyancy. And certainly not Salt Lake-like added buoyancy.
My one and only time in Utah's Salt Lake was not a pleasant experience.
For one thing a long distance of wading was required to finally reach semi-deep, swimmable water.
By that point the salty water was causing a bad chafing reaction between swimsuit and skin. This was partially mitigated by removing the swimsuit and placing it atop one of multiple conveniently located poles which I assumed were installed for that purpose.
The saltwater in my current pool causes no chafing reaction, so the swimsuit can remain in place.
After having myself a mighty fine time in the pool I drove to Lake Wichita to climb Mount Wichita, again. I've been thinking I don't get enough exercise. I used my phone to shoot a video of the hike from the summit to ground level.
YouTube has just finished processing that video. I will stick that video in a blogging after this one. But first I have to have my Labor Day lunch.
Kielbasa on Kaiser rolls, with Kimchee. KKK.
A very international cuisine....
