It was a sunny afternoon when we detoured via Tuross Lake. We went down to a jetty in front of a café at Tuross Head and had a ginger beer. Sitting in the sun on the jetty, feeling almost warm enough in its glare to go swimming on this beautiful May day, Sydney felt so far away. Then some dolphins swam past, that had been trapped in the lake since the entrance closed a few months ago. It was so peaceful, so relaxing, so much better than being in the office at 2:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday.
