I’m not really a die-hard swimming fan.  I know some people really go out of their way to jump in the water if there’s a pool or ocean or lake anywhere nearby.  I wouldn’t say the same about myself.  Mostly because I don’t love being cold, and I usually find myself far out of my temperature comfort-zone.  But here in Arizona, with the 100 + dry heat summers, it can be one of the best (and one of the only) things to do outdoors!
