"ON THE WATER," the back of the card says. and they were correct. Right by the entrance of an artificial lagoon.

No beach, ergo a pool in the middle of a blazing, shadeless parking lot. THe pool's still there, and it appears to be residential now. (The motel, not the pool. I really need to have a second cup of coffee before I write these sometimes)

There were three motels on the block. Wonder if they were bitter competitors or dear friends, eager to help when the other ran out of soap or bleach.
