Yes, there is a swimming pool in my town. I love swimming. I can swim butterfly! I always follow the rules and never break them. I once saw someone broke the rules! I saw someone dive into to pool and made a big splash! The lifeguard warned him and told him not to do it again. I hope he learns his lesson!

I don't know how to swim and my friends often ask me to go to the pool or the beach to play. At those times I often go for a walk or sit there watching the pool or the sea. I couldn’t swim so I read the rules there and followed. There are 2 swimming pools in my place, but I have never gone swimming.
