Describe your first experience at Barton Springs Pool…
Well I think it happened before my memory kicked in. My mom used to take me as a baby. As a child I really enjoyed trying to see how long I could hold my breath by swimming to the bottom of the pool under the diving board and holding onto a rock to keep me from floating to the surface. The view of looking up at the divers going into the water from below is beautiful.

About a month.
