Swimming right now?

Are people swimming at the resorts now? We have never been in December. Thanks!

We were there last week and people were swimming. The weather was beautiful and warm in the daytime. Just a light jacket needed at night.

We stayed at POR last week and a lot of people were swimming. We went to the quiet pool in the afternoon and there a bunch of people swimming. The weather was in the low 80's during the day. We went to the main pool in the evening and my daughter and I swam while dh went in the hot tub. The pool is heated and it feels like bath water. It's when you get out of the pool that you may be a little cold.

Having lived in Florida, I thought those people who came here in the winter and went swimming were crazy!

Last January when I flew to Florida for the first time in 10 years from NH, my kids couldn't wait to get into the pool. The last day we were there, it was a bit nippy - but they still wanted to go swimming.

We're going back this January - and planning on visiting the pool if the weather is reasonable.

We were there last weekend and swam every day. This time of year, it's just going to depend on weather day by day. Bring a suit just in case!

We just returned home Thursday from SSR and went swimming while we were there. Very strange for this Carolina girl!
