Birrong Pool In Winter
This is Birrong Pool, in Sydney's western suburbs, just a couple of days short of the Winter solstice. I usually swim here mid-week after work and, on the weekends, I swim at one of the ocean pools . Birrong is really convenient as it's a short walk from the railway station when I'm travelling home from Cabramatta to Marrickville. The outdoor pool is heated and there are hot showers, so it's not exactly winter swimming. Today I was breaststroking through heavy rain.
