Step into the River

Step into the River

Step into the river!

To say the truth, these steps are more familiar to me as the way out…

Usually I get in via the steps nearer to the wharf. These are the best option when the tide is low since there is greater stability. It’s much easier to walk barefoot on wet sand than slippery, slimy mud. šŸ™‚

Enough of that.

Let’s enjoy the scene.

I particularly love to look at the overhanging Gum.Ā  Generally I finish off my swim by relaxing on my back in the water and gazing up into its well-foliaged branches. These are a favourite resting place for birds such as Magpies and Noisy Miners. In its shade stands a gazebo or two, a perfect spot for picnickers or folk just wanting to sit and admire the view.

One of the joys of living near the Georges River in Sydney, Australia.

    It must be the world’s largest swimming pool Margaret. I’m not sure we still have any outdoor ones in this country.

    Our river, The Tar River is aptly named for the black sticky mud on the bottom and when people would come out it as if they had tar on the bottom of their feet. That is actually how the name came about. The water is mostly between a brown and orange color and I would not get in there for anything. Great for fishing or drifting a canoe and does not have any convenient rails or steps.

      It sounds like our river in the grip of a massive flood…and I don’t blame you for not getting in šŸ™‚
