New Swimming Pool and Weekend #Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #187!

The new fiberglass pool.
I took this photo today.
We moved to our current home when Amanda was just a baby. Our house came with a two-bedroom flat and a large swimming pool. The flat we've been renting out to young couples over the years. We've always shared the pool with our renters, but the ones who use it the most are our kids and their friends. The pool needed attention, though, because it was leaking and required constant scrubbing, so we had it changed from a beach pool to a rock pool with a fiberglass surface. Today was the first time it was filled with water and this evening the fountains and lights were turned on. Everything is working well!

The pool is being covered in fiberglass.

The guys are painting it gray.

While they add paint, one guy sprinkles on sugar.
The sugar is for the surfaces that we walk on.
The sugar will melt, but it will also
make the fiberglass less slippery.

Robbie is explaining the process to Amanda.

Our renters' little dog, Gus,
is watching the pool guys.

Gus is a Dachshund and Jack Russel Terrier mix.

Robbie is filling up the pool. Beside
him is our new shelter dog, Koda. He's a
German Shepherd mixed with Husky.
