WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — At the Clarke Swim Center in Walnut Creek, children splash and belly-flop away a Friday afternoon under the sun. The girls in this 10-and-under crowd are wading in the pool wearing all the ruffles, sequins and neon colors currently trending in swimwear. Some wear one-pieces. Some, bikinis.
This time of year is all about rest, recreation, recovery — spending time with our families and reconnecting. It is also a time of resolution. We look forward to the new school year as a fresh start, an opportunity.
