It was a wet and cloudy day, it was like a light switching on and off, but I could hear the pool calling my name, The sun was hiding from us like it didn't even want to rise up. The rain wanted to go all out like it was angry. The day was a refrigerator.

The peoples shouting were like a broken down car, The people in the pool were like rough lions, I had a lot of fun with the people I was playing with. We played around with the ball like cats play around with a light.

I heard a lot of sounds at the swimming pool like, splash when all of the people were splashing each other and bombing in the pool, hahahaha, the sound of people laughing and playing with each other. Swoosh, the sound of people running through to the pool.
The panmure pools are a really helpful place to go to when you are hot or looking for fun.
