swimming outdoors at Kepala

Having enjoyed watching Penny swim at the indoor pool at Kepala the other day, I thought we'd head off there again today, and seeing it was a warm sunny day I booked the outdoor pool. I think it's a very good bargain to be able to have the whole pool for thirty minutes and only pay $8.



Here's a dog's eye view of the water. Inviting!



I slapped on plenty of sunblock, because this is the time of the year when we get burned, after a winter of not having to take note of the UV levels. However, when I got there I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Penny was happy to swim around fetching her toys and all I had to do was sit in the shade and watch, occasionally tossing her toys in to the water. As long as the toys were floating she was determined to fetch them all back to dry land.

Here she is, working hard to collect them all. It's rather tricky, because as soon as she gets one to the shore and heads out for the next one, the wash from her passing sweeps it back out into the water. But she did it eventually.

Two pitties, it is gorgeous. It's quite a drive to get there, and with petrol so expensive now it does cost a bit, but it's such good fun for us both.

Curator, the internet is so good at giving us a feel for what the other side of the planet it doing. It' strange to read that people are heading into winter while we're feeling the first stirrings of summer.

Just getting caught up on reading some blogs. That video was so relaxing to Mommy. That resort looks pawsome! Penny really had her work cut out for her trying to retrieve all the toys and bringing them to shore. She did a great job!

Lassiter, I hope the relaxing video gave your mum some time out from coping with that gorgeous new brother of yours!

Hound Girl, it's just a wonderful place - both the pools are at the same resort.
