A Rush For The Exit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 9, 2014 in Personal |

Soaring temperatures, sunny weather and a long weekend. Exactly the right time to be out and enjoying some of the leisure activities a town or city has to offer. Here in Germany such activities take certain, almost pre-destined forms throughout the summer: barbecue, the beach, the swimming pool. Here we are lucky enough to have a good, and inexpensive, public pool which is open throughout the summer, surrounded by plenty of grass, room to sunbathe, room to play ball games. There is even a mini golf course.

And a whole mess of people too, right through the day. You can hardly move through the water, at times, for splashing swimmers, laughing children, concerned parents.

Until the first rumbles of thunder in the distance, the first dark clouds on the horizon, the first flashes of lightning. Then, all of a sudden, everyone is making their way back to the changing rooms, out of the water – away from the danger zone – packing their blankets and picnic baskets together, and the area is clear of almost all life forms.

Where a few minutes earlier several hundred people were enjoying themselves, there are only a few remaining stragglers left over. And then the storm passes by, doesn’t come anywhere near us, but the pool is empty.

Love & Kisses, Viki.
