It has been a cold week here in TN with the kids out of school for two days due to icy conditions. That has me longing for a long hot day lounging by the pool. One of my favorite items to include when constructing a pool is a tanning ledge. Tanning ledges give you the best of both worlds in that you can lay in just a couple inches of water to stay cool but don’t have to worry about getting cold in deeper water…and if you’re like me, you don’t have to worry about your three children using you as “base” in a game of freeze tag in the water while you are just trying to stay on top of a float and relax. Here are some pools with tanning ledges that look soooo inviting!
