WHERE WERE THESE GIRLS WHEN WE WERE THERE?
If you hitched a ride or bribed your folks,
Resthaven offered a day of water excitement
unique to Paso Robles. It was the quintessential
expression of American freedom: an afternoon away
from the boredom of home, parents, and humdrum
neighbors. An afternoon where you could see just how
brave you were by sliding head-first on your back down
that ice-cold stainless steel water slide that seemed like it
was a football field long.
The wimpy one meter diving board wasn't much of a
challenge, so we'd head for the spinner raft where a King
of the Hill mentality overruled courtesy, unless a cute girl
wanted aboard. With an American sense of unity, we'd climb
aboard and start working together to get rid of any excess
water while spinning as fast as we could. Then we would
dive out at supersonic speed, to the amazement of all
heroines in the tub.
Great memories that can't be repeated,
since the old pool has been demolished and filled.
Hey, if you have any old pictures of the fun, please
scan and e-mail them to WordyDave. Thanks.
