Young people just don’t know what it’s like to ponder things. These days you just check google if you are wondering about something. In my day, you would ponder and then perhaps ask the person next to you - what is the road of Tyrgikistan or which film was that... Continue reading

Hi Cathy. You made my day. I hope your ride went well today. Elizabeth Sent from my iPad
Inge. I did not. Her name was Emma and once she hit the waves she floored it and got going. She was great Sent from my iPad
No collective noun for waves so far as google told me so I have decided that today it was a nightmare of waves. I feel proud of myself for entering through them but even as I took them one at a time and chanted (as the BB elders have taught... 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

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
