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. 🙂
Enough of that.
Let’s enjoy the scene.
I particularly love to look at the overhanging Gum. 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.
