Eden and Rob are on the waiting list for Venetian Pool. They may get in in a couple of years and after that have a longer time to qualify for a "life membership." This pool, or pools as they have been for some time, have been part of my life since I was eight and went with students from the Druid Hills Church Vacation Bible School. A number of years later I went with the Orchestra of Bass Junior High School.

For many years a private owner managed the pool. Later it was bought by a community group.

July 1, the Friday that was their sixth birthday our next door neighbor of many years ago and Eden's close friend of many years, took Jay and Marti to swim at Venetian. Jay has learned to swim, but here is Marti, enjoying the water but not yet on her own.
