Last year during our first summer in Concord, I wondered... where are all of the pools?   

Surely on these hot summer days everyone flocks to a pool, right?  I searched online, looked all around town... I couldn't find a public pool anywhere.

Then a friend mentions that they were finally accepted into a pond this year after a couple of years on the wait-list. 

A pond?  A private pond?

It was so lovely.  I think this is something that all country towns should have - it was so peaceful and beautiful.
