What a fun morning with a few little waves to add to the excitement on our morning swim to Shelly Beach. Sping swimming is just the best. That winter chill has all but disappeared, the water temperature is back to 18 degrees and visibility is fantastic, many winter swimmers have... Continue reading

We were told to prepare for a large swell so many of us rocked up this morning prepared for a bit of excitement going out to the point. The as you drove down to the beach I'm not sure if it was disappointment or excitement that it was relatively flat... Continue reading

Apologies for the short blog today - issues with the blog camera which should be rectified by tomorrow. The surf was a little high today as we prepare to bunker down for a bit more rain so many chose to go from half way. No sign of our friend from... Continue reading

It looks like the rain and waves are behind us now for a few weeks and its back to perfect sunrises and flat seas for our Bold and Beautiful morning swim. The sunrises are creating some very picturesque shots as evidenced below with the 7amers coming back to shore. This... Continue reading

This morning as we got close to Manly Surf Lifesaving Club for our daily swim we were left a little disappointed. Our nice clear, crisp, flat area of paradise had been replaced by a bit of chop and a bit of a gloomy outlook for the day. Nevertheless the sunrise... Continue reading

The air temperature has taken a tumble over the last few days but the water remains just spectacular for our Bold and Beautiful swims. This is my favourite time to swim as the water is nice and clear, there is plenty to see and the summer crowds have all given... Continue reading

This morning there was great excitement at the surf club with John announcing the Miguel Maestre from Channel 10's "The Living Room" was making us breakfast for the first 50 people who signed the waiver agreeing that their image may be on television. John asked us to wait on the... Continue reading

This morning conditions were just perfect, flat, clearer, dusky's to see and low tide which meant it was nearly a walk to the point. A little bit of rain had us all ducking for cover - don't want to get wet until we need to. But the rain didn't bother... Continue reading

While Ted, pictured with Lainey, Charlie and Freddy celebrated his birthday. And Sophie from Austria came to see what all the fuss was about, enjoying... Continue reading

What a difference a day or two can make. From nice flat, clear swimming earlier in this week, this morning with the southerly change coming through yesterday swimming was a little sub-optimal. And to top it off when I rocked up for my regular swim this morning the 6am bait... Continue reading

While the seas today were a little lumpy and there was a great rip by the surf club to make for a quick exit out of Manly, today we had other reasons to celebrate, the birthday of one of Bold and Beautiful's favourites. Sophie bought down her beautiful family to... Continue reading

Lovely blog Ali and great work being done by the Babewatch crew. This morning I also saw a fiddler ray and numb ray but not the turtle - great swim

The weather may have been a little sub optimal this morning, but the same cannot be said of the conditions, they were near perfect. A few little fun waves on walking in to the water, a wade almost all the way to the point and the most clear, perfect conditions.... Continue reading

It was Boxing Day in 2008, a group of six ladies met for breakfast at Bluewater Cafe to talk about Christmas and their plans for the new year. The ladies talked about getting fitter and how they would love to swim in the ocean but were afraid to. One of... Continue reading

The Northern Beaches is definitely winding down to Xmas and there's plenty of Christmas cheer around the beach in the mornings. This morning these guys were being put through their Xmas paces on Manly Beach. While with Bold and Beautiful it's the battle of the best Christmas Rashie. This Santa... Continue reading

You won't know which way to look at with the improved vision - always so much to see in Cabbage Tree Bay

Where better to spend hot sunny summer Christmas Days than our very own Manly Beach and in particular swimming from Manly to Shelly and back. A lot of people have ditched the wetties and the ugly Christmas rashies are starting to make an appearance. An no its not reindeer in... Continue reading

Dorset got me thinking this morning - each summer/winter we strive for badges, but the badge is just one part of the whole Bold and Beautiful story. While the badge is the individual reward for our hard work - braving the chilly winter mornings or swimming longer in summer, the... Continue reading

Every time I swim in our beautiful Cabbage Tree Bay I am astounded at the abundance of sealife that surrounds us if we chose to turn our focus to our environment rather than the dash for Shelly Beach each morning. This morning started a little grey but with the sea... Continue reading

What a glorious morning after yesterday's wild conditions, perfect for a swim from Manly to Shelly Beach and back. The 6.30am team (above) loved the smaller waves and warmer conditions. Our eyes were deceiving us for some a few minutes, no there hadn't been a sudden massive drop in temperature... Continue reading

This morning the waves were causing a little bit of havoc for our Bold and Beautiful swim. Drinky told the 6.30 team to be honest about your ability and if you were in any doubt to swim from half way or Shelly. The 6.30's head out through the waves. A... Continue reading

Some mornings it can be a tough battle between getting out from under the warm cozy bed sheets and committing to swim at Manly Beach. But then we have lights in our life who make the decision to drag yourself out of bed worthwhile. Fiona is one such person and... Continue reading

Today was one of those 10 out of 10 winters days - barely any swell, a little warmer than it has been at 16.6 degrees, clear and near perfect conditions. The 6.30 team were out in force, some doing the last of their winter badges - swimming 20 swims over... Continue reading

The Z-team forgives the A-team - they really should learn to take a deep breath and slow down so they can see everything and everyone around them on the swim. Great blog Elaine
