My place in time is a local area history project set by Kell at Blackcurrant photography
We are in the middle of a heat wave. Yesterday it was 43, and supposed to be the same today, and a crazy 44 on Thursday.
With it also being school holidays, our local swimming lake is being well used. It is filled in early November until about March, and maintained by the council.
Back in my day(when I was a teenager, without a care in the world), you'd take your chances and go for a swim; in the hope you weren't going to come out of with an infection of some sort. Back then it wasn't chlorinated like it is these days. Thank gawd for that!
The high school holds it's swimming carnival here in February, and there are VACSWIM lessons happening now. Izzy will do these next year, when she's 5.
I took the girls down for a swim and some nuggets and chips for lunch from the lake shop, the chips aren't bad, as long as you eat them before the seagulls try to! Then it was home to the air conditioning.

Sorry about the words :/
