In the shadow of the megalithic giant of history, the Belmont Plaza Olympic Pool in Long Beach, California, there is once again swimming by the sea.

Lucy Johnson, who has been one of the community organizers and spearheads for the redevelopment of the Belmont Plaza aquatics complex, shared the below pictures from the Grand Opening weekend that began on December 19th of the new temporary pool that will hold down the fort while the city spends the next two years, and $62 million, building a new indoor facility.

Above is the Belmont Plaza pool as it currently sits, awaiting final demolition.
