Here's the main pool, taken last October when the temperature was about 14° celsius, the pool is heated so there's mist and general spookiness.





Here's a quiet pool, taken about the same time. You can also see the laundry facility in the windowed building at the rear.







And this one is from the Hippo pool, located to the north of Ol' Man Island.



Ok, there's not really a Hippo pool there. But there should be.

OK, when I saw the picture of the hippo pool I was like, "what? no way! I never heard of that! surely that is not a thing!" LOL. That was a a really funny and cute post. I wish there was a hippo pool now

I'm be there in about two weeks. Didn't know about the hippo pool, should have invited my boss to come along and have them check out this pool!
