Swim on a Sunday

Well today is a hot one and I decided pretty early to get out for a swim. I went out to Balmoral first for a swim there. There was a strong contrast between the hot air and the cold water, perfect! My neighbor JI came down as well, and after a bacon and egg roll we journeyed on to MacCallum Pool in Cremorne. I had never been there before and it was quite nice. It’s described as:
“Located on the western side of Cremorne Point with stunning views taking in the Harbour Bridge and Opera House, MacCallum Pool was originally a rock pool created by residents as a safe harbour swimming hole, then reconstructed in the 1920s above the high water mark. Although the pool is small and narrow (just two lanes wide) it’s long enough for laps. The pool is seasonal (October to March), but admission is free.”

It’s the kind of place I could do a mid-morning walk to, jump in for a quick couple of laps, or just to cool off, and then walk back.
