What better thing to do on a Thursday morning than pull yourself out from under that nice warm doona and head down to the Manly Surf Lifesaving Club for our daily dose of Vitamin Sea. This hearty bunch were some of the 6.30 bunch who head out even before the... Continue reading

We love winter swimming and as if the ocean knows we are about to start working hard on our winter badges the water temperature has dropped below 18 degrees, this morning was a chilly 17.5. There's still plenty of brave souls not slipping into a wetsuit, but for a large... Continue reading

I'm not the one with the reptuation: women's swimmers; opera; fluffy dogs - I rest my case
Toggle Commented May 17, 2018 on Thursday 17 May: The B&B dress code at Pacific Jules

Yes it is getting cooler which means there's a completely new way to dress in the morning for B&B. There's the functional way to dress - love the scarf and uggies. There's the "done the swim now off to do business" look of Jim and Sarah. A raincoat is not... Continue reading

Only a couple more sleeps until the end of daylight savings and we start to get some light back in the morning. Sophie and her friends were jumping for joy this morning with just how perfect the conditions were. There were a few waves to give us something to dodge... Continue reading

Autumn is a bit of a weird time of the year. We are still full of energy and enjoying our swimming from the summer months, its getting dark in the morning before we switch to daylight saving which makes it harder to get up and going, yet the water is... Continue reading

This morning we were faced with the stark realisation that winter is just around the corner - with the water a little nippy to get in but then after a few strokes around in the bay and it was back to the warm summer temperatures. Along the high tide mark... Continue reading

This morning as we headed down to Manly beach the sunrise was spectacular and we were full of hope that the bluey attack of yesterday would be behind us and it would be perfect conditions for our swim. But alas there were still reports of blueys. Murray and his team... Continue reading

After some rough days and interesting surf, it was a welcome relief this morning to see things a little flatter and getting back to normal. The surfers in our corner always makes me a little nervous and there was quite a rip near the wall, but all in all order... Continue reading

Today was Nat's first day with the swim group after her recent surgery. No swimming for another two weeks or so but being back by the sea and returning to normal routine is important in the recovery. And wasn't it great to have her big smile and positive character back... Continue reading

Great talking points Pete, keep up the good work
LesBub joined to fulfil her desire to become a renowned blog model. Great cause - we really don't mind seeing nice fit toned babes and blokes on the beach
So sorry, John, my error about the date - whoops

Before we start today's blog we had better put Lisa's mind at rest - the girls were there bright and early this morning to reclaim the wall, so it is once again "Women of the Wall" territory - none of this talk about the blokes infiltrating - nice try. Despite... Continue reading
