Just splendid
That’s going the extra mile employing an x ray machine as well as a camera. At 7 there were a huge number of of jelly blubbers. Gross to swim through.

Any technical lapses belong to the photographer. Inge is a mermaid. Did you think she may have been demonstrating something to me to work on?

I know what you are thinking - what is YTWL? is it an up to date abbreviation used by all the youth that your blogger will reveal? No. It is a good stretch sequence (says google). One of the most important things about B.B. is swimming. I am on a... Continue reading

It is Friday the 13th and you all know what that means. Yes, lots and lots of emails from websites that you have shopped at or almost shopped at sending you BIG ADS to shop a lot because it is black Friday. I feel so vulnerable because the ads keep... Continue reading

"Getting out" and "getting out" for entering and exiting the sea but also "Getting in" [to the water]and "getting in" [to the beach]. Some people may be confused but ocean swimmers are not....

When I got in this morning to the beautiful sea, and some rogue waves rolled in knocking me off balance, I thought the sea was being mischievous - and we often give the sea human characteristics. It was warm and clean today. Look at the great people who swam Fiona... Continue reading
