As it happens......it was!
Whether people were staying away to watch the footy I don't know, but, whatever the reason, the pool was practically empty! I even managed 32 lengths!
The highlight of the trip though was on my way in, following two women who were going to the gym. One of whom had the littlest shorts on imaginable, I mean, they didn't even attempt to cover her bum cheeks. Now there are some women, even I can appreciate, who would have the figure to carry those shorts off and look sickeningly great in them. However, she unfortunately was not one of those people but apparently was of the opinion she was......
Nevertheless, I admire her bravery and confidence - and it amused me no end!!!
