The local pool has lots of rules about what you can and can’t do there and also has many people on staff to enforce them. Hotel swimming pools also have lots of rules but they are very bad at actually having someone be around to do something about people breaking them. If you show up with a couple 5 gallon buckets full of vegetables and dump them in the hot tub next to the main pool nobody will say anything as you stand there consulting your soup recipe. Or, at least, that’s what I’ve been told. By this one guy.
