It is good to feel connected to something or someone. When I meet a person and find out they swim, I immediately am more interested in knowing more about them because they like swimming. Is there a lovelier sight than a swimmer across Cabbage Tree Bay with a pink cap?... Continue reading

What more suitable film to close a much anticipated and often... Continue reading
