(As a sort of marginalia to our

First of all let me congratulate you for your blog.
About the swimming pool post I would like to refer another "natural" swimming pool in Portugal in a place called Azenhas do Mar close by to Sintra. For pictures of this beautiful place you can go to http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=azenhas+do+mar

I've been to this pool and it has a great setting against the old city walls, looking out to sea. Its very popular too.

I love design that is so integrated into the surrounding landscape and natural systems. Fantastic.

This pool is amazing. I think I have been to it a couple of years ago. I posted a picture on my blog: http://popupcity.net/2009/01/france-pop-up-swimming-pool/
