Now we have a Summer’s Day. This time last week we were flooded in but today – today – I woke and the mists were down. This time of the year, that means a hot, blue-skied day with maybe a thunderstorm in the afternoon. The Girls are coming down from the Valley and we are going for a swim. Lucky we are water people.
I wasn’t sure where we could swim today. The river still has the Fresh coming down from the floods and the Fresh might be lacking in salt but its packed with debris and mud and odds and ends. I figure it will still be too mussy for the Cheery Redhead to be immersed in.
So I cast my mind about for local swimming pools and the BELLINGER RIVER TOURIST PARK came to mind. I interact with them on Facebook and last week they near washed away. The vans had to be moved from the Park and the River broke her banks and they say there were fish in the Amenities Block. We had a “long assed” flood this time. Over a 2 week period. The Park was one which suffered bigtime. Its only about 1 kilometre from my place but for days and days we were separated by floodwaters.
Anyways, they have a pool. I just gave them a call and its $3 a person to swim. Sounds good to me. One sunny day. Family. A tropical swimming pool. Washing on the lines and lawns mown. Sounds very good to me.
AND WHEN IT COMES TO SWIMMING : I wonder what it is about SWIMMING. GLIMPSES OF A SWIMMING FAMILY.
