I remember when my family and I used to go to SPI just about every weekend.I lived in CC,F Bluff for a short time and was born in Kingsville.I plan to go next summer, and I'm excited to go home and swim in WARM water for a change.I live in Seattle now, where the water is just too dam cold! Hang in there.
