At the moment we are swimming almost every day.
We are fortunate to have discovered a wonderful pool which is set in the countryside, about 10 minutes drive from our home. It is open from sunrise until sunset, so during these summer holidays, we are enjoying evening family swims after dinner.
We have bought a family season pass, and are making the most of it. Our season pass entitles us to bring guests, so sometimes we bring a friend or two. Sometimes we are the only people there. Othertimes, there are other people, sometimes my daughter’s schoolfriends are there with their families. My daughter’s dance teacher is quite often there too!
My husband and I swim our 1km laps each visit to keep fit.
My daughter is practising her diving and her swimming, and next week will be commencing 2 weeks of daily swimming lessons each morning. She had these lessons when we first moved here 12 months ago. We discovered that her swimming teacher was the same swimming teacher who taught my husband how to swim when he was a child!
After our evening swim, we are usually met with the local wildlife. Usually a mob of kangaroos and a little joey in a pouch, some horses, a hare. Once we even saw an echidna, pretending very hard to look like a spiky bush.
