Woolwich Baths Before The Storm

I went back to Woolwich Baths on a very hot, very humid afternoon. I really wanted to cool down in the water.

At this time of year, Sydney gets long humid days, often with a thunderstorm in the late afternoon. There was a big storm developing when I arrived at the baths.

I spent quite some time jumping off the wooden decking into the deep, salty, river water like a big kid.

Later I swam many breadths of the baths along the shark netting. Several times I even practised my very poor front crawl. After a while, I just floated along in the warm salty water.

As I left, the storm was building up to the north - west.
