I remember spending a lot of time at the MacArthur swimming pools when I was a kid. The fresh water pool, the salt water pool with the diving board and the sea splashing over into it at high tide and the slides. I remember when we were small we used to slide at the old kiddies slide a few hundred meters further down (not there anymore) and how we “graduated” to the bigger slides when we got older. Ah the good old days. On Saturday we spent the day at the sparkling blue swimming pools at MacArthur’s Baths even though some things have changed, a lot of things are still the same. Oh how the memories came flooding back. Now if I only remembered to put on sunscreen….
