2-Nov-2014 Summer has arrived figuratively!

Sunday 2 November 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

I didn’t do a lot on Saturday.  Up late, chores etc but I did go swimming. It was very hot 35C and quite windy (perfect weather for bush fires, and in fact there was a fire in the Blue Mountains). I swam from the rocks at one end of Hordern’s to the wharf and back. Going was with the wind/waves and not too bad but coming back was very hard – quite a bit of up and down and water in the face. Afterwards at home when I was getting into the hammock on the back deck I had a small globule of water run out of my nose onto the floor – a clear sign summer has arrived and it made me feel very glad! I even walked the dog.

On Sunday I took Ko to soccer tryouts for the reps team. It was hot and lasted 2 hours. She didn’t think she made it. I enjoyed watching.
In the afternoon I kayaked to the white house and left my kayak there and ran to South Cronulla along the esplanade. I could really feel my right knee muscle that’s pulled. It made running quite painful. I swam around the buoy and boy was it rough. It didn’t look like it but in the water it was quite bad. Big sloppy waves. The temp was 19.0C but as I have been in the water a lot recently it felt quite warm. It was certainly good as a tryout for swimming around Shark Island as it is time to start doing that again. I ran back to the Kayak and paddled back home – it was really great although I did get smashed on the shin by the Kayak whilst exiting the water. Needless to say I was stuffed in the evening !
