Better than the pool….

With 90 km/h gusts, this morning wasn’t looking too positive for the open water.  Amazingly, because the wind was more Westerly than South West at Myrtleville, we had a 200m stretch of calm sea, perfect for swimming.  Just a hundred metres further out, the waves were howling past, but the cliff beneath Bunny’s had us sheltered. So, we did laps of a long outdoor pool – with no chlorine.

Sure, where else would you be at that hour of the day?
