A city curiosity in the well-heeled Coral Gables neighbourhood, this public pool is a former quarry where Miamians have been splashing about since 1924. Framed by craggy waterfalls and swim-up grottoes, as well as a Mediterranean Revival-style visitors centre lined with archive photographs, it has limpid , jewel-coloured waters that mimic Miami Beach’s shallows at their most inviting. There’s an onsite cafe with family-friendly lunches, too. Children must be aged three and over to visit.

Elliot, Bella and Susie need her, in surprisingly similar ways. They sound alike too, their language limpid and eerie, a queasy wellness blend of psychoanalysis and internet niceness that has them speak of transitional objects, optimisation, flow, authenticity, containment.
