After I had left home, the family moved to a house with what we used to call a "built-in" pool. What a dream that would have been. The next best thing was the interval when our grandparents lived in an apartment building with a pool in which we got to swim at least weekly. Generally it was hotter than ever when school started, always the cue for a significant warm up which I suspected was to keep us from being able to wear our new school clothes, better suited to autumn days.
