Weather today? Even the brush turkeys were staying under cover. Mostly. The best thing about the water was the temperature. Why it was so warm I shudder to think. Here are some indications about the water quality and visibility. I did hear Anne E say she saw a fish, hopefully... Continue reading

A south-easterly swell with a gently northerly wind sounds the perfect combination for a long swim, right? Possibly, but the conditions weren't particularly gentle today.

Spring is doing its thing today, and the first day of daylight saving started quite nicely with warm sunshine and a sparkly ocean surface.

It's going to be a hot one today, and after driving around several blocks for quite some time I hit the car park, figuring the fee would be less than a parking ticket. There were LOTS of people about, and even more an hour and a half later when I... Continue reading
