Serendipity Sundays ~ Solar Floating Light Show Every Night!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Last Christmas a dear friend of mine gave me a very fun gift for my pool, solar floating balls that light up and continuously change colors!

They float around in your pool all day charging up so once it is dark, Voilà they are sporting fun colors! I even have a remote control to use if I want.

I couldn’t break them open until my pool cover was removed so once it came off and the pool cleaned, Hudson and Beckett blew them up and threw them in the pool! Now I’m enjoying a light show every night!

One of my all-time favorite Christmas presents! Thank you Laurie!

How fun are these balls Dorie!  I want some!  We typically have had about 6 or so big penguins floating in our pool for years but I think it's time to shift the show to a solar light show!!😎

Oh my gosh, Dorie, you won't believe this but, I have these in my Amazon cart!! A girlfriend bought them and love them so, I shared them with Ray and he did a little digging. They're evidently very reliable for years! 

LOVE your pool and I know you enjoy watching these fun lighted balls float in the dark!
