I’ve done my water therapy exercises for my knee at La Punta Resort. But we have had many afternoon thunderstorms just as we are getting ready to leave for the pool. So, we filled up our plunge pool so I can do modified knee exercises.
The last time I wrote about our pool, we had started on the landscaping. These stone pathway forms are wonderful for a small patio, garden paths, and even a driveway.
The finished patio gives us easy access to the pool and keeps the dirt from accumulating in the pool.
We bought a small pool filter in the states. The only pool filters we could find in Nicaragua were for large pools.
It still looked bare around the pool, so we explored a variety of plants that would grow rapidly and spread.
We choose lemon grass and wandering jew because lemon grass can repel mosquitoes and wandering jew spreads over the ground rapidly. Perfect for our south-facing area.

Not a bad $400 investment. I highly recommend plunge pools because they are easy to keep up, use a small amount of water which can be refilled in three hours with a garden hose, and it is really refreshing on our hot days! Plus, it is a pretty cool place to rehabilitate my knee.
