A great weekend job. This is the life.

“This is the life,” is what came to mind when I passed by this scene yesterday. I’m sure these guys really enjoy coming to work, even at the weekends. Our lifeguards are all ready for action at their temporary station, should the need arise.

I went to see how the new lifeguard tower is coming along, as it’s supposed to be finished by October this year.

Disappointingly, no progress has been made at all since it was demolished a few weeks ago, so it would seem that they’ll be operating from this platform for quite a while.

  1. IΒ΄m sure the lifeguards enjoy their work … But I canΒ΄t figure out how the new tower are going to be ready to use in October this year … Perhaps the workers must speed up their working tempo a little bit … // Maria πŸ™‚

    • Yes, I imagine so, and it’s not so comfortable now for them, as it was when they had their tower with the nice balcony. The guys do chat up the girls a lot, to help pass the time, and vice versa. πŸ™‚

  2. Sylvia i actually worked as a lifeguard for about five years as a teen and while in nursing school. There are a lot of great things about the job but on busy days or in an emergency, it’s not such a pretty picture. I do recall poor weather days like these where holding down the chair from blowing away was the biggest task. πŸ™‚
