But I Digress… An Unusual Day at the Gym

I am on assignment this week, a photo opportunity cruise. Due to my relative lack of Internet access, I prepared this post in advance. The photo is just for fun, the story is about a happening at my health club and gym in January, 2013.

I haven’t been feeling well over the past few days, but yesterday, I finally felt well enough to go to the gym and work out. Lynn was in a one-hour yoga class but after only 30 minutes on the treadmill, I was feeling done for the day.
Since I had another 30 minutes to kill, I decided to take a quick shower and jump into one of the two spas they have in the pool area. The two spas are nestled in an alcove near the lap pool. They are pretty large; maybe 15-feet square with an underwater bench seat ringing each spa. As I walked toward them, I noticed that one of the spas was closed. In the other were two guys sitting at the center of the back wall, and a young black lady seated toward the front on the right corner.
I put my towels on the floor at the front left, stepped out of my shower slippers and slowly lowered myself into the 100-degree water. For the next few minutes, everyone was quite relaxed in the spa, heads leaning back, and nobody was saying anything. I felt the warm water massaging my aches away.
A few minutes later, I noticed motion to my right. The black lady had stepped up on the seat, while at the same time, she deftly grabbed her towel and wrapped it around her body… but not before I noticed that she was completely and utterly naked. I couldn’t believe my eyes.
I looked to the other two guys, in their late 20s or early 30s or so, for confirmation. They were looking in her direction, jaws hanging down and wide-eyed. They must have seen her as well. They began quietly talking in an animated fashion in a low voice so they couldn’t be heard.
Obviously, in a public pool area, with kids around, there’s no way that nudity would be allowed, so needless to say, I was completely surprised. With her towel wrapped around her, she was walking along the front of the spa in my direction. Her motion allowed the front of her towel to separate at the bottom, and then I saw it… the bottom of her one-piece swimming suit. The color of the suit matched her bronze skin exactly. She smiled as she walked by. I knew her secret. The two guys were still smiling and talking between themselves. From their angle, they couldn’t have seen what I saw. I prefer to think that they will always remember the naked lady that stepped out of the spa at the health club.
