So, if you’ve been in or around Glasgow over the past few days, you’ll have noticed that it’s been a little dreich. Thankfully, this fair city of mine has plenty of things to do during those days when only ducks venture out. Glasgow has a wide network of council-run sports facilities, and through my work I have a membership to the Glasgow Club. A benefit of being a member is that I get to access all their facilities at no extra cost – including any of the swimming pools.
So, today I took my daughter to Scotstoun Leisure Centre and took advantage of my Glasgow Club membership. Being under 5, she gets in for free and I get in as part of my membership. No money to hand over! Even better! As a Scot, there’s nothing I like better than getting in essentially for free! My wife and I are both members, and we bring our daughter to the pool here quite often. At the weekend, as you’d expect, it’s a little busier, and today we had to wait for the next session to start before we went in.
The main pool was VERY cold. So much so that she went a little blue, so it was time to head to the kiddie’s pool. MUCH warmer. In fact, I could have stayed in there all day. I probably would have if there had been a swim-up bar, but hey-ho, you can’t have it all. Maybe something to add in time for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games..
All-in-all, the visit was fun – as it always is – and we’ll be back again soon. Whether its raining or not.
