The Hot New Luxury Good for the Rich: Air

The many rock pools that have survived for decades along the NSW coastline are an iconic reminder of times past as well as an essential part of our present and future coastal communities (“Swimmers, watch out for crumbling pools”, February 25). Community members meet early in the morning, often before dawn, and throughout the day to swim laps, converse and allow friendships to flourish. All without paying a cent. Not only must the pool structures be maintained, reconstruction must be carefully planned to make no mistakes in tidal flush-outs and seaweed minimisation. Our forebears knew and understood the currents and wave pattern and built accordingly. We must insist their knowledge is utilised for best possible reconstruction. Mistakes have been made in our area in the past, with dire circumstances and the pools left smelly with weed and dangerously unswimmable as a result. Our ocean pools must be maintained as an essential part of our history and a memory to those many who built this country before us.
