Trigger warning: the following blog contains information about waves (scaring the s**t out of me but not literally) swimming and plastic. I hope I did that right. I am exhausted from watching the quadruple crossing of the English Channel and then other Channel swimmers going through the night without regard... Continue reading

Friday the 13th, Black Friday? No but there were some dark moody clouds which I love as it sets off the pink caps so well. It was 17.2 today in the water and not too bad out. Today was the birthday of Sarah and Nathan The triathletes had cake for... Continue reading

Congratulations to cameras Kate on her elevation. Gorgeous sea shots for Ian’s birthday
I thought I had understood something but I have to go back to the drawing board on the winds. I will read that para twenty more times. Slowly

It is great to know that when you need a swim, you can go to Manly and swim with others. It was not a pool swim today but I really enjoyed it. I think it rated as quite bumpy which bumpier than pretty bumpy. It was caused by onshore winds... Continue reading

Not today but memorably on a prior day when the waves looked big to me but there was a toddler playing in the same waves

THE NATURAL ORDER OF THINGS Swimming in the sea connects us to nature - the seasons, its secrets, its treasures. And today there was a visit by dolphins in the early swim. I saw them. They must have been keen to swim with the early swimmers who are an impressive... Continue reading

You are reluctant to get out of bed on your swimming day in winter especially when it is a cold day but you do. You get to Manly and find a spot to park. The early swimmers go in and they are exiting when the 7 am goes out. You... Continue reading

Well it is winter after all but I was all agog that the number 6 appeared in the temperature - it was 16.9 today. While not a comparable activity that I swam in 16.9, I note that Brianna Thompson of Brisbane yesterday completed a double crossing of the English Channel... Continue reading

Our thoughts are with the swimmer who had contact with a grey nurse shark yesterday and wish him swift and complete recovery. Today lots of swimmers came because the swim is dear to each one of them in its own way and has a lot of meaning for them; it... Continue reading
