Finally! Freshwater ocean baths!

Six years since I first attempted to swim here (and seven years after starting this ridiculous swim safari), I finally swam at Freshwater ocean pool. In April 2010, as I swam up the Northern Beaches via their rock pools and tidal baths, Freshwater pool was closed for cleaning. In 2012, the pool was closed for renovations. Ten months ago, it was again closed for cleaning when I came to swim. But today...........

Of course I swam my mandatory one length in the overall direction of the south to north swim. But I was so pleased that I carried on to do many more lazy lengths. The seawater temperature is still about 23° Celsius.
