Woooo Hoooo, I have just come back from my first session in the pool. My hair is still wet and my smile has not faded yet. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed swimming. We used to live on a hill overlooking our little village and the swimming pool so it was no surprise that I was drawn to the pool. In 2001 I took my first swimming class (I was 53 but don't tell anyone). From that day I felt at home in the water and the day I completed 200 laps, I think all of Emu Park heard me.
We moved in 2002 - down the road and round the corner, sort of, and since we live almost on the beach , I took to walking in the early mornings with my friend. At the moment I have an issue with my foot and it is taking some time to get better which means walking is out of the question (and I really need to do some exercise) and since I don't like the feel of sweat, swimming is the PERFECT option.
