Como Tidal Pool

It is a joyous thing to discover a new swimming spot.

And today was one of those blessed days.

Como Tidal Pool

A South Coast girl at heart, who happens to call Sydney home, I have travelled the Illawarra Train Line countless times and often wondered the name of ‘that pool’ , viewed out the window as we crossed ‘ some bridge’.

‘ Some bridge’  the ‘ Como Railway Bridge’

‘ That pool’ the ‘Como Tidal Pool’

Scenically stunning but a not a single swimmer in site. Referring post swim to the book ‘ Wild Swimming – Sydney Australia’ by Sally Tertini and Steve Pollard ‘ DH Lawrence noted that Como ‘….is a bit like Lake Como, but, oh, so unlike’. The 50 metre enclosure with a wharf is deep within the Georges River’

The book also notes ‘ the baths are little used’

Loving the 12 Beaches of Christmas 2019 edition. I’m really making ground, discovering new things – salt water and fresh water gems alike.

Only six reviews remain. May the count down to Numero Uno continue in the same vein : good company, blue skies, summer sun, refreshing water and salty skin.

    I enjoyed the literary references and the expectation of 6 more reports
