My recollection of my last visit was 20 years ago.
It wasn’t a good memory.
Chaotic. Loud. Dirty.
I had to manage my expectations.
The invite was last July 12, 2009.
7:00 in the morning.
I was in for a surprise.
It was like coming home.
Childhood memories began rushing in.
Olaer Spring Water Resort has been reborn.
The Olaer family finally put their acts together.
The improvements are noticeable.
They may be taking baby steps now…
But they are dreaming big.
It’s good to see the Olaer of my childhood…
Back in its fighting form again.
For how can one not love…
Cool and sweet spring water.
Clear and crystal blue.
As you swim the length of the pool…
Feel the fine sand on your soles.
And there’s that big rock…
That needed to be conquered.
Old habits never really die.
Beer is still chilled underwater.
Experience My Olaer.
It’s like coming home.
