Palm Beach Ocean Pool (6 Jan 2013)

From January 6 to 11 2013 my friend Ann and I walked the Northern Beaches of Sydney, from Barrenjoey Lighthouse to Shelley Beach, Manly. I had wanted to do this trek, part of Sydney's Bicentennial Coastal Walk for some time, with the aim of swimming in all the 14 ocean pools along the way. Here's pool number 1: Palm Beach Ocean Pool.

Love the shot through the inlet/outlet hole. Whenever I try a fancy shot like that it doesn't seem to work.
Occasionally consider doing the Shelley to Barrenjoey walk, but get turned off by the thought of the long drive(s) from Lilli Pilli. I assume you stayed up that way for the week.

Graeme - we stayed at the Collaroy Youth Hostel, and caught the bus to our starting point each day (where we left off the previous day.
