After my 5 km this morning I rocked up to the beach looking forward to a swim …

Beach closed 1398

Oops. Probably the effect of the overloaded storm water system in the recent heavy rain. Either that or — as one of my fellow swimmers suggested this morning — so much dog shit on the beach it skewed the water quality testing thingy. “They look for faecal matter, you know,” she said. “Just swim out further.”

Yeah, sometimes one has to go further than you thought you wanted to go, to take steps you hadn’t thought you needed to take — to avoid the excrement in your environment.
