Awe, It's fun once you learn. Then, you'll find ways to Kayak, snorkel, and deep sea dive, broke or not, lol!  When fear sets in, it's a little harder to learn, but the fear is most often conquered leaving you free to move like an aquatic creature, lol!... Take a class, it only takes about, two or three sessions to learn for most to get the basic skills down packed.

Me neither but I can kick my way from the middle of the pool to the end. I have created something that looks a hot mess but I can save myself if it isn't too far to swim. I do the dog paddle thing. Lol

Lmao! Everyone in my family including myself are big swimmers. When I used to go to pool parties I would be one of maybe 3 people who actually got in and swam.

Yes everybody in my family including aunts cousins etc. knows how to swim. My parents love the water and go to the lake or the beach and we had a pool. My always said there was no way in hell they'd have us by the water and not know how to swim. Lessons started at 5 and I'll do the same with my kids.
