20 January, 2011


As promised we all took a break from unpacking and went to the TP pool for the morning.
Tom Price has a 50m pool that was refurbished a couple of years ago and so is a little bit fancy. Half the pool is covered with shade sails, there is plenty of shade on the grass around the pools and we met the most delightful man at the counter on the way in.
Unbeknown to me, lots of country towns hold a Rottnest swim. On February 11th when swimmers leave Cottesloe Beach for Rottnest Island, teams and solo swimmers will also swim 20km in the Tom Price pool!  Ade is too late to join a team this year but is keen to get back into his swimming and will undoubtedly swim to Rottnest, in the middle of the Pilbara, in 2012.
The pool hosts a water polo club on Thursdays, has water aerobics with a gorgeous male instructor (so the man at the counter assured me), has a mega inflatable on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the school hols, runs kids swimming classes and will be the place to be in Tom Price on Australia Day.
All in all we think that we'll spend a lot of time at the pool and that our half-season family pass is a good investment!
