I missed the Adult Yoga this morning because I was too busy playing in the water fun zone at Marriott’s Harbour Lake, but I’m not about to pass up the chance to play Big Family Volleyball with the biggest ball ever or Water Balloon Toss at Harbour Field. I’m just a big kid who prefers hours of water fun and childlike games more than any “mature” activities. Marriott’s Harbour Lake is designed for kids and kids at heart like me.
After breakfast this morning, I went directly to the pool, grabbed a towel, and ran to the top of the water slide. What really put a smile on my face, though, was that I wasn’t the only adult on the slide. A man, albeit with two children, was racing me up the steps to rush back down the slide. He even asked if we could go down head first. I also heard him ask his one of his sons which theme park they wanted to visit and the son replied, “Can’t we just stay here? This is so much fun.” Clearly, we were all water slide lovers.
During my first run, I stood at the top of the slide and noticed the water was rushing at a pretty good pace. Following the slide to the bottom with my eyes, I could tell it was going to be a quick trip. I sat down, the temperature was neither too hot or too cold, and gave myself a big push. I was off and sliding.
The first corner was quick but rather level. Then, an unexpected drop left me with a surprised expression followed by a huge smile. I understood why they posted height restrictions; this was an adventurous ride.
One hour is the limit I put on pool fun for one morning. I’m usually wrinkly by that time and try to save some excitement for other activities. Today, I need to dry off and change for Big Family Volleyball followed by the Iron Chef Competition. I do have a few hours between the competition and Family Movie Night and I bet you’ll find me back in the pool. I can’t help myself; it’s my Heaven.
