On Monday and Tuesday we had incredible weather here in Melbourne. So incredible that it made me think of Sydney *again* and in particular our backyard. On days when the sun warmed you to the bone we'd crank up the solar heating to begin swimming season. I loved having a pool. Friends would pop in after school and family would visit for a dip. The kids favourite thing was to turn on the pool lights and swim under the sliver of the moon.
Unfortunately we don't have a backyard pool here. Our local pool is the next best thing but if that's where we have to be to get our swimming fix, we'll be there....with bells on.
