Just do it - even if you're 75 years old
The Kids & Kubs Softball Team is legendary to St. Pete. It also goes by the moniker "Three-Quarter Century Softball" which means you must be a male of no less than 75 years in order to join. The team's been around at least since the 1930s when our town was well and truly the recreation capital of the nation; rumor has it Babe Ruth coached a few games while here for Spring Training. In the old days, players wore natty bow ties and long pants along with their spectacles; today the uniform is comprised of more forgiving-in-the-heat shorts and tees.
Games are played on a real dirt field in beautiful North Shore Park, on the bayfront and in the shadow of the downtown skyline.
These amazing older gents play three days a week and also actively raise money for charity. Who says you have to slow down when you become older? These young-at-heart men prove that you don't.

Come in, the water's fine
Lake Vista Pool, built in 1963. I love the simple block lettering of the Atomic Age. Used to swim here in the late '70s during summer camp - I was bold enough to dive off the high board back then!
Now there is this hideous-looking water slide that was installed recently. I guess if you're 8 or 9 years old, it's not hideous at all.
