Visiting Friends in El Paso, Part 1: Swimming
I next spent about a week in El Paso visiting my friends Chrissy and Carrie over New Years. And while – very, very sadly – Rachel, Jen, and Andrew could not join us, we had a great time. Of course the first thing we all did on the morning after Carrie and I arrived was go to the pool. Because Chrissy’s husband is stationed at Fort Bliss we were able to use the pool there for free. The best part? It has a rock wall. Oh yeah. I had never done any sort of rock climbing before and I have to tell you, I loved it. We had a great time, laughing and generally being goofy as we learned how to navigate up the rocks and then laughing more as we fell back into the water.
We also played a bit of waterpolo and availed ourselves of the diving boards. It was so much fun.
