Intriguing Infinity Pools

Lately, I've been intrigued with infinity pools. Maybe it's because I'm experiencing great emotional pain in my life right now, and infinity pools have the appearance of endless calm and relaxation—at least most of them do.

found one that gives me the heebie jeebies. It's located in Singapore, and it stands 650 ft. above street level. Although the edge of the pool isn't as severe as it appears in this picture, I don't know how peaceful swimming among skyscrapers would be. Yikes! ☺

Marina Bay Sands Hotel - Singapore

On the other hand, here are 12 spectacular infinity pools (one for each month of the year) that exude "calm and relaxation." I'm sharing them in no particular order for your oohing and ahhing pleasure.

1. Baraka Point (The Estate) ~ Virgin Gorda
(Extravagant spenders can rent this magnificent place. You have to check it out...here.)


2. Santorini, Greece

  
3. Hotel Caesar Augustus ~ Island of Capri
(You HAVE to see this place. Majestic! Click here.)


4. Jade Mountain ~ St. Lucia
(The beauty of this place will really take your breath away.)


5. Puerto Rico

  
6. Blue Palace Resort and Spa ~ Greece
(It's hard to tell where the pool ends and the sea begins.)

7. Bahamas


8. Jade Mountain ~ St. Lucia
(Just wow.)

9. Spain



11. Bali

And last...

12. Bora Bora

__________________________

Every time I look at these infinity pools, so still and serene, I'm reminded of verses from the 23rd Psalm:

"The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul."

How comforting it is to know that, in times of agonizing grief, when tears fall like rain, and our hearts ache without ceasing, rest can be found in the Lord. ♦

  6. I suppose being in one is different that just seeing photos, but I agree with you that they are a bit creepy.
