With many swimmers enjoying the year-end break, the mood is definitely relaxed, despite some challenging swimming conditions. There appears to be a sandbank out from the point, delivering interesting wave and rip patterns. Note the sole swimmer entering the water I saw the 6:30 swimmers heading out from the beach....

Apologies for the lateness of this blog - I've just come back from doing my annual Bronze wet proficiency (with a side trip to the supermarket on the way home). You can now rest assured that Dee Why is protected for another year, under the benevolent gaze of yours truly... Continue reading

Oopsie! Not only did I show up late, also did not check the calendar. I started with Jo Gregory. We both expressed sadness over the absence of the cheesy one. Hopefully he will be back soon. I'd been reading the blogs from the past week with some excitement, but had... Continue reading

I've just delved into the link you posted and must say I agree with it 100%. I've been having some work stress and haven't been to see Doctor E for a few months. Made it back 3 weeks ago. One treatment in, the stress is still there but my response to it has changed - patterns of stress adjusted. This stuff works.

You never know what you're going to get was running through my mind as I walked down Ashburner Street this morning. Confession - I noticed Forrest Gump was on the tube last night but surfed past it. So much seaweed! For a minute I thought I was at my local... Continue reading

I must admit I did not want to get up this morning. After getting soaked several times through the course of yesterday's work day, surely I deserved a sleep-in. But we bloggers are a dedicated lot and who am I to let the team down. Hardy regulars mulling over the... Continue reading

Should have come and swum instead of watching that tennis match that turned into an episode of South Park. Great blog, evoking fomo right now.

The longer days and the rain we've had over the past few weeks have triggered a burst of spring flower growth, on display in the front gardens of Ashburner Street on the way to the beach. Here are some gorgeous azalea, magnolia and brunfelsia aka yesterday today and tomorrow. The... Continue reading

Great photos Edwina! It was very cold but still lovely.
For once I managed to catch the 6:30 Drinks Express starting their swim and heading into the sunrise Including Asleigh and Sherry-Anne, hoping the cold water will make them feel better (once more with saturation) Julia's very early start was rewarded with the sight of phosphorescence. She's telling John all... Continue reading
