In addition to a very nice pool, there were chess tables,
a horseshoe pit,
a couple of charcoal grills,
a Spaceship jungle gym,
and lots of chairs and lounges.
The open-air clubhouse had a full bar and full kitchen,
a vending machine,
a generous bathroom,
and 2 showers and 2 toilets.
"Just put on sunscreen, okay?" Kelly told Declan. "Because I don't want you to get burned."
"You've done a really good job with Declan," Alice told Kelly. "I admire you for that--it can't have been easy for you, because of the whole Derek-Lana thing."

"I feel bad for Declan," Kelly admitted, "and I think he can be saved." (Kelly was an evangelical, and thought pretty much everyone could be saved. She had previously, for example, managed to save Alice from a life of binge-drinking, partying, and casual sex.)
"This swim club is a REALLY great addition to the neighborhood!" Regina enthused.

"I guess," Lou dismissed Regina's comment. "Never thought about it."
"Although I suppose he'd be good breeding stock."
