Pool Kicks

My favorite swimming pool on Maui is at the Grand Wailea Resort. It is 2000 feet long and curves back and forth from a highest point - 40 feet up - down to sea level. Thanks to their water elevator, it is possible to keep on swimming non-stop.

Today was the first time I've ever seen it empty. This photo shows an interesting section where the sandy bottom meets the rest of the pool. They use a special sand which doesn't move around much, so it doesn't get into the pool filters and pumps.

The swimmers also love this pool and have been kicked out of it many times.
