Following the historic meeting between North and South Korea, then a Federal Budget where we are all winners, poker faced swimmers were looking for three of a kind this morning and we came up trumps. Not trumps like Donald and Melania but trumps in the mindful meditative way that we... Continue reading

So, we had one of our biggest swims yesterday and rightly so as we commemorate ANZAC Day. We had singing and trumpet playing and speeches. But as much as I love the big days I confess I enjoy little every days better. For some things bigger isn't always better. I... Continue reading

OK mate I'll just stick with my mates in Scientology and the Masons so I don't get too clubby.
But he woke up when he heard not one but two huge birthdays today. And they both have such huge hearts we almost needed a bigger blog to fit all the excitement in. I’m talking of course about Lisa Boyle and Megan Fraser. And while Lisa is happily married to... Continue reading

But what’s more important is what happens after the love. And this is not just an existential rambling about meaninglessness but the very essence of meaning. Because... Continue reading

After spending 10 days in arctic temperatures in the US it is a delight to be back as your humble correspondent in balmy Manly. And since on Australia Day tomorrow we will be hearing a lot (dare I say too much) about 'lands girt by sea' and 'loving a sunburnt... Continue reading

So much headline drama this morning that we almost need two blogs and a Panadol. First it was the swell and whether we swim from the beach or ½ way. Ian as usual took command like a young Trump in training and suggested we swim from Shelly. Either that or... Continue reading

Thanks Edwina... great shot of you
That's a long on for a boulder next week?
Malcolm Forbes says that diversity is 'the art of thinking independently together' and the B&B is the ocean swimming arm of his body of opinion.

Thanks mate...wasn't that what they said to Ned Kelly?
On our bumpy, beautiful and misty swim this morning I was thinking about Mindset and wondering whether my mind is set. Because I’ve heard when your mind is set on something that’s a good thing. Or is it? Well, maybe maybe not. In a fixed mindset, you believe your basic... Continue reading
