Swimming must be a good idea in the coming hot summer.When I was a child,living in a small village,there was no swimming pool nearby.When the summer came,I would like to go to a pond near my village with my tiny friends.However,it was really dangerous to enjoy ourselves there without the care of our parents.Sometimes,accidents took place,and killed lives.But most of us didn't konw the danger at all,and we went to the pond by ourselves without the permission of our parents. As time goes by,I have grown up,and am far away from my hometown.When the summer comes,I will think of the happy time playing with my little friends in the pond.However,busy work keeps me away from that. SO guys,do you have any plans about where you will go for this summer?Do you live near the sea,and where would you like to swim?

I want to go to pools I don't like the sea in NY it is filthy and the water is dark. I liked the beaches in miami a lot. So,there is a public pool in my neighborhood I plan to go to often.

I also live in NY and don't like to go to the beaches here. They are so dirty and sometimes even smell during high tide. I never learned to swim because of this. I enjoy going to pools but only when I am on vacation. Then I will go to the hotel pool.

I live near the sea in my province though it's far from the city I still can go there any time I want since it's only a 4 hour bus ride...and it's so worth the travel time to be in the cooling waters of the sea... I used to always sneak out to swim in the sea, my mother can't keep track of me especially since our house is so near the sea! I always pretended to sleep then jump out from the window...hmmn, now I remember why the windows have grills...

I am excited of our forthcoming office outing on May 27-28. It will be held in a resort an hour drive away from here in our office. We shall be having indoor games at its function hall, since it's still too hot to swim. Comes night time, after dinner, we shall be swimming in the pool. I am the committee for solicitations and a lot of suppliers shall be giving us foods, such as lechon, chicken, seafoods and soft drinks. There is also a committee on foods in-charged for the cooking of all our foods for the two days. T-shirts have been printed for us to wear. We are already so excited of it.

Most likely I will swim at the community pool this year. We went to the beach this spring and we swam in the ocean, but it is far away and gas cost so much right now. I love to swim!

Since my son likes to go to swim, so it goes without saying that we will go swimming this summer. It will be lots of fun. Swimming is a good sports. There are two water parks and some swimming pools in my city. I hope the weather can be hotter so that we can go to swim. I love China

I live just three miles from the coastline. However it has sinking mud and a dangerous tide. There is a rescue craft that is successful at rescuing people stuck in the mud. There is a lovely beach and a muddy estuary that it is very dangerous to try to cross. It looks like it is an easy and short walk so it is tempting but out of the question. Some people have drown at the town beach like a fisherman who was standing next to the old pier. One minute he was there and the next moment the poor man lost his life as he was drowned. I swim at an indoor swimming pool the coastal town. I want to go up to Portishead and swim at the outdoor pool but the weather will have to be very hot indeed for me to do that. The best place for me to swim is from a tropical beach on an island. I love to swim from a white sandy beach. If the ocean is calm I love to snorkel to see the coral reef. It is so special to that it is a hobby that I miss. I did some snorkeling in Colombia and saw pretty fish but no coral. The last time I saw a coral reef was in Belize five years ago.

Although I live in Florida, my family and I still prefer to go swimming in pools. We live in a condo complex and have a pool here. We like to go to the beach, but I hate going in the water. I'm so scared to get stung by a jellyfish or step on something sharp in the water and cut my foot. I also don't like the idea of swimming with fish - it's where they "go to the bathroom". SO for me, it's all about the pool. But to most Floridians, the beach is they way to go.
