Hot toothpaste and moonlight dips

 

 

I don’t know about the rest of you but things like hot runny toothpaste squirting out, sizzling, characterized my week. Jumping on my bike only to bounce right back off of it – why didn’t I park in the shade? Sweat pimples – great! Stomach bloat from drinking way too much iced water. I should note here that I don’t have air con at home or at work. So after six consecutive days where the mercury boiled above 40 degrees (!) I thought I would do a little review on the town's swimming venues and other tactical attempts to cool down.

I give my verdict on the best pool for a social swim and the best for an after-dark outing, and consider other favourite chilling spots – supermarkets (not!), the cinema, the library (my fave).
