It is the end of another day, and looking back on it I can say that the part I enjoyed most happened at the beginning.
I went for a swim today before the start of school at the outdoor Wainuiomata Pool. When I arrived there were a few swimmers already in the pool and a duck trailing across the water, looking assertive as if it belonged there more than anyone else.
The water was warm and it was nice to be swimming next to the bush, watching the sun spread across the valley and listening to the birds sing as it did.
Even the half-eaten sausage at the bottom of the pool (a recent school outing perhaps) could not dampen the moment.
