We decided that we must not stick together all the time. Elizabeth liked to get tanned in the sun, I always prefer to be out of it.
Because of the huge size of the spa and it was also on a work day it was pleasant that it was not over crowded with people. It was also very quiet. No blasting radios or TV's not screaming and yelling. The kids were kids without fighting each other or making excessive noise. No littering. It was a very relaxing afternoon.
I talked to the very friendly "Bademeister". He is responsible for good behavior of all guests and takes care when help is needed. He told me about all the courses which are offered and the different treatments for beauty and health. It is an almost never ending list. Starting with normal massages up to different kind of treatments with oils algae etc. If you are interested just ask for the actual treatments being offered.
Everything nice and clean
The heated outdoor pool
The outdoor area and the water slides
Elizabeth coming down one the water slide!
I am still looking to find such a place in Ontario
The cows had a good time too
After staying quiet a while outside I felt the urge for ice cream.
I got a really delicious one at the "Bistro".
I am not sure wether smoking is banned in the "Tabbs" today. If not it should be. Luckily I did not see any smokers. I am aware that the government wants finally to follow other counties in banning smoking in many places. But each party is afraid to lose voters and the restaurants to loose customers. I always ask them why do you not allow your guests to bring their own drinks or food but cigarettes? People should spend their money in your place and if they do not smoke they have more to spend.
After having enjoyed the ice cream I decided to have more exercises. I went back to the main pool and went toe the ":Strömungskanal" where a strong jet pushed me through the channel. It is just wide enough to spread your arms which allows you to swim against the strong current.
The "Bistro" where you can buy drinks and snacks
The children's pool
Here are the kids!
Here is Elizabeth swimming numerous laps
The so called "Sole-Therapiebecken" which is filled with salt water. The temperature is 36° C. Special therapies are offered. You must book that extra.
A little one is learning to swim. Did you know that you can get special water tight diapers? I did not and we will check availability in Canada.
