Million Dollar Pool




Out the north road on the Kenai Spur Hwy in the small town of Nikiski is a beautiful pool. When they built it back in the early eighties it cost a million dollars. Well worth every penny in todays dollars. Bought a punch card and went swimming in it for the first time today. No, I didn't go down the slide. One of these days I'll get a wild hair. Maybe.

When you have nothing to do or unhappy? What should you do to spend the free time? How about the game? like to get Cheap World Of Warcraft Gold in WOW, and how to have theCheap Gold for WOWwith less money, is there anyway to get the for us? We need to think about this.

This pool was caused to be built for the North Kenai Community largely by my Grandfather Charlie Koehler. I spent a good deal of time in that pool long before that water-park stuff was there, and it was designed for olympic grade sports. I performed a perfect 10 back-flop from the high-dive there that resounded throughout the geodesic dome like a thunder clap that is likely still echoing, ever so faintly, in that massive structure ;)
