The beat was more obvious this morning, but it’s there everyday. The inner beat you tune into that keeps your life in rhythm, and for us it includes an ocean swim. It’s why we feel out of rhythm when we don’t get a dose of the ocean. It’s part of... Continue reading

Pleasure Lainey for me to put a bit back when you put so much in. Charlie is a great kid and wonderful to see him supporting mum and dad.

I must confess I had mixed emotions about the swim today. Is it too cold to swim? Should I be a WWWW, that is, Winter Wimp With Wetsuit? (Ian we need a badge for this). I packed my wetsuit but didn’t wear it. How about a double? What about just... Continue reading
