Children's pool at the Newcastle Ocean Baths beside the Pacific Ocean

These images of the Children's po0l in winter were taken 2 days ago on my trip to Newcastle. I have drawn and painted here and worked in my studio on this theme so made a point to visit here. The day was so bright and yet few people were around so I had a chance to sit quietly and enjoy the space.

I love the way the moss and algae forms on the side of the pool and pathway...adding this intense green to the view. I find the movement of light on the water completely mesmerising, especially with  the area so quiet on this visit and nothing to distract me from my reverie

Hi Chrissy,
the colours are was incredible to see this spot again...and realise that I hadn't dreamed up the colour of those mossy pool edges...with the water, ocean, rock pools and sky all such a feast for the eye.
I have quite a number of things to post after such a short was an excellent catch up....thank you!
See you very soon.

Thanks Novi...just had a look at your lovely blog! Again! It really is like a travelogue for your corner of Canada with the amazing images you post of weather, landscapes, places, interiors and such.
I had trouble deciding which of many images to post on the pool!
