The temperature was 25 degrees at 9am, and 29 was forecast, so it was the perfect morning for an early swim. Corsair Bay, just 14km from home, was the chosen spot.
As I approached the beach I met a couple coming out and asked them whether the approaching low tide (only two hours away) made it harder to swim. They said it was fine, but a bit windy out past the boats. I assured them I had no intention of going that far! By the time I’d gone in a few metres the water was over my waist, so low tide was definitely not a problem.
I’m not much of a swimmer, and prefer to just float on my back, enjoying the view of trees, and being in the element of water. A dog wearing a life jacket was sitting patiently on the beach. Two paddle boarders approached the shore, the dog climbed on board with one of them and they all headed out. I was sorry not to have my camera with me.
