I know how to swim but I am not fond of it, I live at a lake, but I never swim in it, they also have a pool and I don't swim in it either. I do wish I had a hot tub or a Jacuzzi though, that is more to my liking! Just sit in it, not to hot mind you, just nice and warm with a nice cool breeze blowing to make being in the water feel that much better! Maybe even a nice glass of wine near by. It doesn't take much to make me happy!
