Once again I took my picture while out walking with the dogs. As we passed the local pool the empty lifeguard chairs caught my eye. I find it amazing how things and places change with the seasons. Although this pool is deserted today I can almost hear the splashing and laughing, see the towels, shoes and clothing spread out around the pool, and smell the sun cream and chlorine that will return with the summer. Until then, this lifeguard is definitely off duty.
