A very slow start to the morning but there was a definite buzz building as people arrived. Initially I thought it was the rare sighting of Rainer, king of the foamies, our own version of Kelly Slater However, today even he was outshone by a newbie by the name of... Continue reading

The past week has been gorgeous with water temperature hovering around 20 degrees and almost perfect swimming conditions. I say ALMOST perfect because as you probably know, Shelly has been off limits due to pollution. There has been no official reason given but it is believed that the sewer line... Continue reading

Thanks Shelley. I think it must be one of my only blogs that hasn’t included you. An obviously deficient blog.

You won’t fool me again. I now know the difference between 5 cent and 20 cent pieces.

Yes. Gemma seems so nice but she treats Sunday bloggers like sweatshop workers.

Some Sunday mornings you wake up and think, would't it be wonderful to just turn over and drift back to sleep. Now, that's OK for the rest of you but us poor overworked and underpaid Sunday bloggers do not have that luxury. Our Sunday blog boss, Gemma, is usually at... Continue reading

After yesterday's dramatic drop in water temperature to 14.4 it was hoped that John Bond's trusty thermometer was going to show a return to the relative warmth of 15 plus. No such luck, the temp rose a big 0.5 degrees to 14.9. It's been a magnificent week of fantastic swimming... Continue reading

The end of daylight saving and we make that inexorable march into Winter.

Yesterday, being Australia Day, we all congregated at Shelly in an attempt to sing the national anthem. Considering most could not get even through the first two verses, maybe it is now time for our own B&B anthem. Here is a wonderful one composed and performed by Luke Escombe. In... Continue reading
