156: River browns

I went for a swim this morning, thinking I might do some indoor jobs afterwards. But the sun was shining, it was calm, and everything was announcing 't-shirt weather'. So I changed plans and took off out for a decent long cycling route around town. I ended up down by the river near Panieri Park and Buick Crescent, cycling past some parts of the Manawatu River I simply hadn't seen before.


  1. You swim in the Manawatu River? Surely not! Maybe you were thinking of going for a swim at the beach, and this lovely photo misled me :)
    Hasn't it been amazingly warm?

  2. No, I don't swim in the Manawatu River, but I know some people who do. I went for a swim indoors at the Lido before my cycle ride :-) I am sure the sea water would be far too cold for me. One Polar Bear Swim in my lifetime was enough!
    It has indeed been amazingly warm. Hard to believe.
