While the Annenberg Community Beach House pool may occasionally open during the springtime, should warm temperatures arise, the schedule at the Santa Monica landmark grows pretty consistent come the beginning of June.
And one of the weekly happenings you can now count on through the summer, save a couple of holiday dates? Monday swims for a buck.
Best to get those exceptions out of the way first: July 4 is a Monday, as is Labor Day (as always), and $1 Splash Mondays will not apply to either.
What to do, where to go and what to see
But as of Monday, June 13 — the start date — you only need to pack four quarters, or ten dimes, to dip into the outdoor pool, which sits mere steps from the sand. And the sand, of course, sits mere steps from the Pacific Ocean, should you decide to take a saltier dip after your time in the historic home's beloved swimming hole.
Note: The Pacific Ocean observes pay-nothing Mondays, now and forever, as well as pay-nothing other days of the week, too.
There's also no first-come dealie with the Big Water, but there is at the pool, as a pool is finite. (Well, the Pacific is finite, too, though we'd surmise that everyone on the planet could do some laps and still have plenty of room to spare.)
Rules and such? They're good to know. Upcoming doings beyond $1 Splash Monday? Sunset Swims, classes, and the Cardboard Yacht Regatta all dot the summer schedule, like the dots of sunblock one makes along one's arm.
That was a stretch, comparison-wise, but we included it to remind you to pack your sun protection. June Gloom may still be murkying up our skies, but you just know that ol' sun will peek through sooner than later.
