Thanks Franksey. It was!
Thanks for that. I heard a few reports about that octopus and glad you were there for the action!My Octopus Pedicurist even lol!
Lots of PJS around at the moment, sometimes called the 'labradors of the sea.' They come to Cabbage Tree Bay when the water goes below 17 degrees. It was 15.8 today on a sunny but chilly beautiful morning. The water was clear and full of amazing sea creatures. The area... Continue reading

Lots of Cuttlefish sightings this morning at Fairy Bower. When they stretch themselves out like this it's a courting display according to the book I'm reading! When you see two males together they begin competitive displays blazing with colour changes and patterns! I saw this on Saturday but did hear... Continue reading

Port Jackson Sharks are back now the water temp has dropped to 17 degrees and they are busy finding the crevasse and rocky ledge they inhabited last year! Veena and I followed this one from near the pool for a few minutes. Beautiful! We didn't have anyone blogging today so... Continue reading

An absolutely stunning morning down in our special corner of the world with sunrise at 7am, 16.5 degree water and great visibility with teems of fish! First day of a 2 week lockdown... but thank goodness we're allowed to exercise and the waters of Cabbage Tree Bay felt particularly healing... Continue reading

Unique and fun blog. Thanks Di!
Cuttlefish photo bombardment continues! Won't be too long now before these gorgeous creatures start to die off as both males and females die after mating and only live to 1-2 years! This was the lovely Lisa Peresan last week being swallowed by a Giant Cuttlefish ;-) Thank you Tim Keith... Continue reading

What a stunning sunrise this morning to bring in the first day of Winter! For the last 10 years (since I found this amazing group) 1st June has taken on a new meaning as it's the start of a challenge. The cold water see if we can swim 20... Continue reading

You had to be down at the beach by 6.30am this morning to see the amazing light show. It was spectacular! I always try not to miss the half hour before and after sunrise and had to jump up from yoga on the beach to photograph this! The Drinks Express... Continue reading

It was an absolutely ahhh...mazing morning down at the swim today. Sunny, golden with great visibility and lots of fish! It's also the time of year when... if we swim closer to the rocks and keep a good look out, we get to see the amazing Giant Cuttlefish in this... Continue reading

Everything was sparkling this morning! The sun on the water, reflection of ocean and the smiles of swimmers. What a morning! The air temp was just a bit lower than water temp which had risen to 19.9. Even the Cuttlefish's 'w' shaped eyes were sparkling and around the edge of... Continue reading

Dr Michele, Helsy, Lisa and Jane got their colleagues from Northern Beaches Hospital Emergency together today to give our swim a go. For some like Clare it was the first time they'd swam in 20 years but they loved it and I'm sure we'll see them again! Thanks guys for... Continue reading

I was greeted with a lot of negativity this morning down at the swim, a first for me in 8 years of blogging! Early swimmers reported dirty water, weed and stingy things. However Martina from Port Melbourne thought it was great! It was her first swim with us and usually... Continue reading

Great blog again Di! Wondered who it was, love your style!
This sea sponge found washed up in the weed, provided a lot of entertainment at the swim this morning! Michele (bottom right) said 'it's great how something so simple can bring so much joy and pleasure!' True love at yoga this morning. Cali and his owner! Flat, calm and getting... Continue reading

In 10 years of swimming with the B&B... today was particularly quiet and uninviting down in our little corner. The wind was howling, surf raging and it was raining! With all the flood water, parts were rather brown but we convinced ourselves that was from soil rather than the other... Continue reading

Well done Edwina on good coverage of a really 'ordinary' swim! Still glad i did it though. The dustiness from Friday night drinks has gone anyway!

Not sure about the bums Rusty but I love your blog! Those foam and sunrise shots are stunning. Glad you had a romantic moment with Chippo ;-)
I love that description Shelley so long as the blog isn't reminding you of the calamari you ate last night!
Thanks Janet! I'll let you off the 'looney'!
Our lovely fortnightly blogger Andrea unfortunately can't blog anymore so asked me to blog today. As I had to go to the city early it's a few photos of recent sightings and just a few of today's swim, then I'm reposting a blog I wrote exactly 5 years ago today... Continue reading

I love asking swimmers about their swim as they come out of the ocean alive and invigorated. I also have to say "What did you see?" The first swimmers I asked surprised me as they delved inside their cossies and pulled out pieces of fruit! "A banana' said Lesbubbles and... Continue reading
