For something different, I ventured south today to Maroubra. The waves were smaller as it’s very south and missing the bay, but Mahon Pool at the North End was a buzz with morning swimmers.
Mahon Pool was originally a naturally formed rock pool along the cliffs to Coogee. During the Great Depression, the public requested (led by Patrick Mahon) to make it safer for swimming by concreting the outer walls. Imagine the pounding those walls have taken over the years.
Bondi was straight and 3-4 foot. I didn’t see anyone catch anything worthwhile. It’s a glorious sunny day; we could top out at 23 degrees. Not bad for the last day of Autumn.
