Harvard and London 2012 - LA style

Sometimes it takes a little extra sleuthing to find new pools and a way into them, but the return is always worth the effort. I like to think of my morning swim with the LA Swim Club's Masters group today as "East Coast meets West Coast by way of London" as the Harvard-Westlake pool was modeled, in large part, on the London 2012 Olympic pool. As I've swum in both ...

... I can see the connection. Aside from the LA pool being outside and having part of the pool (to the right in the picture above) with a deeper part to accommodate diving boards which were not present in the main London 2012 competition pool, it's a very close replica. Another stunning way to start the day.
