Swimming Pool Diving Boards Uk

The railroad used to dump used ties onto his property next to the apples trees which grew in the pasture. This was a sort of barter for the water gramps allowed them to pump from the stream for their steam engines.

There was kink in the stream and across the land part, a trench was dug and railroad ties used for the construction of a heavy wall. I remember my uncles helping with the moving of large stones, some concrete pouring and all of that. I wasn't too interested in the construction since there were trees to climb and kites to fly. Besides, a dip in the downstream of the tiny falls was also on the list.

The day came when the crook in the stream was filled and each morning we'd leave the house and rush to see how high the water had risen. We were always disappointed. To kids, everything should happen overnight.

The stream originated from a small spring fed lake about 3 miles away, on Breckenridge's property I believe, and by the end of summer, we were at last leaping into deeper water. Through the years a bit of landscaping would develop and "the pond" soon reached its present shape and size.

My grandparents welcomed all to come to the pond for swimming and picnics. In the wintertime, there was ice skating, and sledding, and grams would make hot chocolate for the youngsters.

When my aunts and uncles grew up, and moved away, it was decided to sell the pond, and adjacent property, to an association geared towards the preservation of fish and game. The swimming facilities were enhanced by two spring boards and one tall trapeze tower. A club house was built and every Saturday night a small dance band was present. In mid summer a "field day" was given with dozens of contests and more fun than one kid really should have.

For years, anytime one wished to swim, use a free rowboat, picnic, target shoot, or even camp overnight, could do so in an unrestricted manner -- rain or shine -- night or day. I spent so much of my summer time at the pond, I often thought that mom wondered if I had run away. There is absolutely no way for me to describe the free spirit and freedom of those times which often prompted me to shout with joy. I did not know, when I was very young, but I later learned that the only people allowed to use the facility were those of northern European extraction. It was a condition of the agreement with my grandfather. It was a very beautiful thing when one is surrounded by people who look like you -- your own kin and kind. God, it was beautiful.

Dad told me once that a local jew tried to buy his way into membership but even a twice-offered huge pile of money failed. That was the first wave of the future assault.

Over the decades, using the frog-in-heated-water technique, all fell under the choking grasp of our Marxist Big Brother. A place where hundreds used to gather, frolic and laugh, would soon be just a memory.

I hadn't been to the pond in decades although I was a lifetime member due to my family's involvement and presence. I need not tell the readers what my child's heaven is like today. The insurance vampires made sure there was no swimming when the air temperature was below 70°. Life guards now watch as if the place were a prison. The extremely popular tower was taken down along with the 6 foot diving board because they "were dangerous." Row boats, which once were free, now cost $5 an hour to rent. There is a buoyed rope barrier to warn people than it is no longer permitted to swim the length of the pond to the beach. Running is banned and no one is allowed to enter the water except at two authorized places. There are "hours" when one can use the shooting range and even picnic tables have their time schedules. No picnics on the grass, nor at the beach, nor on the "island". The huge 3-passenger swing on the island was taken down because it could not "be supervised". The clubhouse is now a storage shed; field days have been discontinued and the Saturday night dances only a fond memory. Last, and I saved it intentionally, "the pond" is now blessed with diversity with all of its litter, slovenliness, noise and zoo-like atmosphere.

I had hoped that grandfather's ghost would rise up and pull every piece of that dam out and let nature return it all to the pasture from which it came. At least horses and cows would be preferable to the environmental pollution of the mud duds.">The railroad used to dump used ties onto his property next to the apples trees which grew in the pasture.
