...not getting smashed as in inebriated I hasten to add, (although I have got quite a collection of those photos ...!!) Today it was one of those days the swim made you feel really ALIVE!!! Nothing like being hit by a sneaky wave, dumped in to seaweed and having a... Continue reading

Our swim group is called a few different things. I like 'The Pink Caps', the B&B and 'The Bolds', not so keen on 'The Bold and the Beautiful'. Jac came up with a different name today and here are a few swimmers showing their booties post-swim!. Unfortunately I was told... Continue reading

Very nice to say Greg. Thank you :-)

Happy New Year Jenny!
Thank you Lucy. Your Wednesday blogs are a hard act to follow!
Not sure if Roger Harvey or Ingram. Happy Birthday Roger Ingram if you!
Thanks Shelley and your positive feedback on the blogs is really appreciated!
Happy New Year everyone! The swimmers above unknowingly swam through the shark alarm for half an hour this morning during their double! We all know it was probably a calm and docile Grey Nurse Shark anyway but apparently the lifeguards have to set off the alarm if a shark sighting... Continue reading

We often forget the little fish. The gorgeous schools of Mados, Pomfred and Hulafish we swim through every day in our beautiful Marine Reserve, Cabbage Tree Bay. How lucky are we to swim in this most magical place. Sometimes I'm so keen to spot a Turtle, Grey Nurse or Giant... Continue reading

That was the message written in capitals on the B&B whiteboard this morning... Here are the reactions of Roz and Michele before they decided to risk it and swim. Patrick and Martin just smiled... Roz and I were at the Surf Club early today at 5.55am. We were about to... Continue reading

The stunning sky early this morning... I had a bit of writers block for the blog today... Asking swimmers about what the swim means for them though...the healing effects of the ocean featured highly. Swimmers said the best way to get the therapeutic benefits of a swim in the sea... Continue reading

Even when the water is murky and the fish are harder to see, we can often come across a beautiful Blue Groper at The Bower or around clearer parts of the bay! A cold morning today but calm water and lots of happy swimmers high on endorphins! I took this... Continue reading

Well it was Izzy's birthday today and the water warmed up to 19 degrees as a b'day treat. Photo above from last year as I missed Izzy in the water this morning but hear she did get in! Stunning sunrise above Shelly Beach at 6.03am and the air temp had... Continue reading

A bit dull and dreary at 6.30am this morning... Air temp had gone down, water temp down to 17.0 and water murky. Somebody described it as like swimming in a river! I was wondering how I was going to get inspiration for my blog when I entered the ladies toilets... Continue reading

Trevor the Turtle wasn't to be seen today unfortunately nor the Grey Nurse, but we did get lots of sightings at the weekend so there's a good chance they're still around! It was a beautiful swim though. The sun was up, water calm and quite clear... and lots of grinning... Continue reading

Well there was only one gorgeous Green Turtle this morning but as usual lots of legends! Inspiring people like Pierre Lord who has just come back from swimming from Ireland to Scotland and Emily Kempson, Australia's Ultraman Female champion who talked to us last night about her incredible achievement at...

I was stuck for a blog title today so have named it after the stumpy tailed Ray and Grey Nurse Shark that have made Cabbage Tree Bay their home the last few weeks! Excitement at the swim this week with the presence of not one but at least 2 Grey... Continue reading
