Memories of Last Summer

At Ramsgate Baths

At Ramsgate Baths

It’s been a while since I swam in Ramsgate Baths, on the Botany Bay Foreshores of Sydney, Australia. Last summer, in fact…

The reason?

Although I love the freshness of the sea, I’m scared of venomous sea-creatures such as sting-rays that can sometimes be found there.

And so, I stick to the river. That’s not to say that it’s hazard-free: it isn’t. But somehow, I’m less worried about the small chance of striking a jelly-blubber in the baths. Sharks, however, have been reported, but outside the swimming enclosure. They inhabit the river as well as the sea.

And yes, that’s me, braving Ramsgate Baths, last summer…

    All I can ask is that you take care. Swim with a big gun so you can sting the beggars before they sting you.

      It’s much safer in the river, David, and I so rarely swim anywhere else. 🙂

    Yes, Australia certainly does have more than its fair share of hazardous fauna!

    I would be afraid of sharks.

      Yes. I never swim anywhere unless there’s a shark-proof net. But it doesn’t keep the stingers out…
