After walking across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, I then walked around Circular Quay and past the Opera House and through the outskirts of the Royal Botanical Gardens.
Aussies in their natural habitat, bumming around:
Mrs Macquarie’s Chair:
Wolloomoolloo (did I spell that right?):
Destination: Pool number 2 – the Andrew “Boy” Charlton Pool.
Another glorious outdoor 50m pool (part chlorinated/part salt water), mostly dedicated to lap swimmers, too!
That was a solid workout of a day.
1km swim, 5km walk, another 1km swim and more walking. I had another pool on my pool crawl, but alas, I a had plans that afternoon so had to end the day short. Only 2 pools, so not much of a pool crawl. Will need do the other two pools when I’m next in Sydney (September — probably not the best swimming weather though – it will be winter in the Southern Hemisphere).
A Sydney pool crawl is definitely a cool way to see the main sights of Sydney and get in a bit of fitness. Learn from my mistakes – don’t spend the day walking around in thongs (flip flops). Joggers are a better option. As are shorts (and not a summer dress). And rinse off all the salt after each swim to avoid chafing.
