A cooked chook in a shake ‘n’ bake bag, or maybe an overdone saveloy bursting at the seams: getting into a wetsuit in 35 celsius isn’t easy. But my “pain specialist” is keen for me to get back into snorkelling as part of living with early onset lumbar osteoarthritis (“Don’t push it, just one step at a time”). Now, I’m wondering if I’ve misunderstood the true meaning of “pain specialist”.
When in, it’s good, passive exercise, with the positive buoyancy of sea water. But I may have scared off most of the fish in the marine sanctuary at Ricketts Point, Beaumaris, in Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay…
