Summertime and Brevard

Long, hot days remind me of my childhood in Brevard. I walked to town in the morning to meet the Ecusta bus which took us to Camp Straus for swimming lessons. When I got back, I walked home, ate a bite of lunch, and then walked to Franklin Pool to spend the afternoon practicing and chatting with friends. Camp Straus and Franklin Pool were great places to meet up with friends. Late in the day when the pool was ready to close, I walked home with my sun-burned shoulders throbbing as I went. As long as the weather was clear and the swimming lessons lasted, the schedule didn't vary.

What a great childhood!
