Today was the last swim for Triple Crown trophy holder, Christoph. He is going to Denmark. Bon voyage. This is an end for him but it opens up the first place position for a new swimmer. It will not be me - I could not even capture his speedy strokes... Continue reading

The news reports made me wonder if the sea would be ok for me today to swim in But you should always have a look. The conditions depend on the orientation of the beach, where you get in and also your skill. I managed it ok today but only entering.... Continue reading

In a recent course I attended it was noted that there is a diminishing in our society in conversation skills. I have noticed this but not at swimming. At BB you can talk about swimming and conditions all day. One of many good reasons to swim I was interrupting conversations... Continue reading

I have been doing dna tests which has been an interesting exercise. I dont know if science has caught up but I think there must be a single ancestor to all swimmers. That is why this group have started to wear the same swimmers and are so close that... Continue reading

If you swam today you will be addicted to ocean swimming - going through with other conditions to get a day like today. Matt and Lucy are trying to improve my land fitness by getting ready on the fringe of the BB area. Great day for a swim The newbies... Continue reading

I arrived today to get some heat out of me by swimming in the sea. It was a powerful surf and only for the brave. There were many stung by the blue bottles brought in by the North Easterly wind. I enjoyed have a dip in the sea but only... Continue reading

The sea is different everyday in some way. There have been some big waves, strong currents, very cold water as well as sun and sand. And we cope by adapting according to our own ability. It has been hard for everyone to do summer badge swims though. Today there was... Continue reading

Today the conditions were quite challenging so it was a comfort that a BB swim can start at half way or at Shelly if your skills are not sufficient to go out in such surf. The early swimmers did a huddle and then set off through the waves. The BB... Continue reading

As Christmas approaches, we all have our rituals and traditions, visiting family and friends near or far, via main roads and airports, going to an annual location for a holiday, having an end of year concert, shopping or preparing to work. Some of us have a favourite Christmas movie and... Continue reading

While I truly believe in tolerance in all things, I do prefer bilateral breathing. Imagine the plight of the blogger in the middle of the bay, doing a bit of aquarobics and trying to get an action photo but the swimmer breathers only to one side?! Not as good as... Continue reading

It may be hard to tell that seasons have changed on land but you can tell change of seasons in the sea. Water temperature changes, appearance of sea weed, people going overseas to enjoy the northern hemisphere during summer etc. Su and Greg are back in their natural environment. Welcome...

The forecast was for 5 m swells yesterday and I still came down to swim so I am counting today's swim as a big swim even though there were only a few waves. But there were blue bottles. I sought out an injury to photograph but there were none. These... Continue reading

This week saw a sea snake appear on Manly beach. I am scared of snakes. I am glad there was no snake today. Pouring today but that is ok - let the surfers have a go. One newbie today and that is great, as long as no sea snakes come... Continue reading

The water is hotting up. the waves are moving about. It is getting to be Spring like. I wonder if there is a gauge of the understated old Australian way of describing the surf of our swim. "Manly Lake" for the flat conditions which suit me so well all the... Continue reading

With our Greg and Sue Marinan in Italy and Michele Franks at Niagara Falls and elsewhere, we had swimmers from Boston (Natalie), France (Emanual), London ( Jamie) and Gustav from Switzerland. Makes me remember that it is one world we all live in and what a great place it is... Continue reading

Blogging for BB is so easy. All the swimmers are bold and/or beautiful or charmingly ridiculous. the waves were quite strong today so I walked to Shelly which is why there are photos of Shelly Beach and swimmers today, for a change. Two thousand for Greg Marinan. Mare is the... Continue reading
