Mahon's Pool from the cliff path
Finally, Sydney had a sunny day, so I went swimming in Mahon's Pool. The rock pool is just up the coast from Maroubra Beach (you can just make out the beach in the photo). Today, most of the surfers seemed to have decided it was almost winter and were wearing wetsuits. The seawater, however, is still 23 degrees celsius. Even the air temperature got up to 27 degrees.
The water was clear and warm
I swam front crawl, breaststroke, sidestroke and even a half-hearted backstroke. Then I just floated in the water for ages. I really didn't want to leave. Especially as the rain is supposed to return tomorrow.
