Missing you already

With the rainy, cool weather in the past few days, I haven't been able to swim outdoors for a while. I miss it. An inside "gym swim" just isn't the same! He4re's hoping for some nice sunny and warm late autumn days to come - just like this one.

The future of Bexley pool is under a bit of a cloud. It urgently needs a large investment, as it is leaking 20 000 litres a day, and though open year round, needs some indoor facilities for lessons and leisure swimming over winter. So far Rockdale Council has not committed the necessary funding. As well, the current management has been replaced....all very murky indeed.

  1. Oh, Steffe, ummmm, by your standards probably a heatwave! Around 20 to 21 max during day.

  2. You know how some people become very depressed in winter? I don't but I do long for swimming weather to return.

    Some people fantasise about food, alcohol, fabulous clothing... in winter, I dream of hot sand, crystal clear water and sun tanning sunshine.

  3. How does the pool leak 20000 litres a day?
