That was Saturday morning. Then, on Saturday afternoon, I went to this one, a lovely 1920′ pool looking like Deauville’ beach houses.Capture d’écran 2014-03-08 à 12.00.23

And then, On Sunday, I went to this Olympic Pool, erected a century ago and looking like a fire station from the outside.Capture d’écran 2014-03-10 à 12.39.26It was totally empty. It looks like Brisbane people, on the week-end, would rather go the beach – But we cannot blame them, can we ?
