Here’s a swimming pool with a wave machines to excite and delight Sydney families from all over.
Don’t you love swimming with the kids? It wears them out and we parents can splash around and get some exercise too.
I’m sometimes startled by how many parents sit by the pool fully clothed whilst their kids play.
They’re missing out on a simple way to get a bit of movement happening… and who cares about our wobbly bits!??
I’ve had heaps of cellulite for about 30 years now so I am totally used to it… and the fact it ain’t ever going away… really, nobody is looking at we old duckies, what does it matter? Honestly?
Embrace the wobble, I say, and don’t let self-consciousness get in the way of a healthy heart.
But I mustn’t rabbit on… here’s the scoop, piccies and a little video about this lovely family spot:
