Bicycling To Botany Bay
Not content with swimming at Mahons this morning, I got on my new (cheap) bicycle, and pedalled very slowly along the bike tracks along and around the Cooks River to Botany Bay. I couldn't swim at Kyeemagh as they are still working on the desalination pipeline, and the swimming enclosure has been taken away. So I lazily cycled down to Brighton-Le-Sands, and had several swims there. Each of the swimming enclosures along Lady Robinsons Beach are huge, so swimming along the length of the shark net is quite a workout in itself. I seem to be using front crawl more and more, which is the stroke I used to use when I was swimming a lot in the 1980s. I gave up the stroke because I used to get bad shoulders, but so far i've been okay. Then again, I'm a very lazy swimmer these days.
