Kids in Mahone Bay learn to swim at the Mahone Bay Pool, a gem in the heart of town.
The pool is open in July and August, and welcomes visitors as well as locals.
There are public swim times in the afternoons and evenings.
Mornings are devoted to Red Cross swimming lessons, from beginners to Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross.
The teachers are mostly young people who have come up through the system. It’s a great summer job.
Classes and public swims are not crowded.
Registration is coming up soon. Find more information on the Mahone Bay Swimming Pool’s new website, created by yours truly.
