Earlier this month, Sydney waters experienced the highest tide of the year.
Officially 2.04 metres, it may well have been even higher, for at the baths (where I’ve swum for over thirty years) on the Georges River , I’ve never seen it so high..
Though not a regular swimmer, my husband Ron decided that this was an opportunity too good to miss. With the water temperature being around 25 degrees, who could blame him?
Our Maltese cross, Chicki, couldn’t bear to be left out, and soon discovered that she was almost chest-deep in salt water though her feet were firmly on the promenade.
For her, the adventure was followed by a warm wash, then sun-baking on a chair.
What a memorable day!
