Last nights swim at Mr C was incredible. The pool water at night is lukewarm and soothing. You can hear the sounds of animals echoing in the distant hills. The animal parks surround the Schoemansville area in Hartebeespoort dam. Some sounds make you turn back to shallow water. It is a symphony of animal sounds at night. Baboons are running wild in the Magaliesberg hills. You step out of the pool and get back into the steamy sauna. The night winds are dry and warm. After a fifteen-minute sauna session, you step into pool floating on the water surface toward the edge. The night lights flash in the pale moonlight. You close your eyes and hear the footsteps on the balcony approaching.
