Blue Pool (‘One Shot Wonders’)

This is the place I want to be, right here, right now*, because it’s too hot…

Murrumbidgee River, Boambolo Road, via Yass, New South Wales, Australia

Boambolo blue

It was a beautiful place to come across in the late afternoon, suddenly, unexpectedly.

We had the place all to ourselves – except for the frogs and a sentinel owl.

Every turn in the river was a surprise.

We found a cool blue pool, ringed by pines.

And watched the sun leave its last colour in the sky.
