The sunrise was lovely this morning. As usual. The haze from the past few days hasn't quite passed, making for pretty mornings. I've been out of the water for a few weeks due to cataract removal surgery so this is a dry blog. However...... You can take he underwater photographer... Continue reading

The booty!

Heavy showers along the coast in the morning. Willy Weather concurred. But they were both wrong. Plenty of blue early morning sky greeted the 6:30 swimmers. I just managed to catch this group before they headed off (the parking gods were only moderately kind to me this morning). Who needs... Continue reading

Still cloudy with intermittent rain this morning, we were greeted by the endoskeletal remains of one our cephalopod companions. Hopefully it found love before being eaten by its fellow CTB residents But enough of doom and gloom and onto the matters of the morning A newbie whose name I have... Continue reading

Unfortunately even the most fragrant of laundry products cannot cover the reek of wall envy.
Just the first ones then it hid in the car.
280 swimmers and 9 newbies despite the still cool water temps (I must say I'm rather partial to the colours of this year's winter badge. Don't forget The Ceremony on 22 September, let's all get in sync for it) It's a newish feeling to leave home in full daylight but... Continue reading

Apologies for the upper case (not really), please log them today - this was a message management asked me to include in the blog. It's so nice to be back after a month away on the other side of the world, especially when Manly turns on its best conditions (huh?)... Continue reading

Nothing to complain about when it's the weekend and the morning looks like this. I honestly believe every morning is perfection; immersion in it provides an opportunity to remember that even for a little while we have this daily refuge of calm and beauty. Ready for their daily immersion. Baby... Continue reading

There wasn't much talk today of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, so there's your reference and lets get to the topic of today. Swimming in the sea. A sizeable contingent of ski and board paddlers. Not a bad way to start a morning as we all know.... Continue reading

Wow that is a significant effort, well done you.
We're in the depth of the Sydney winter (which isn't that bad really) but still we respond to the call of the sea. A good sized crowd swam today Water temperature was quite a shock to some While others did not appear perturbed This is taking calm to the next... Continue reading

Very foggy this morning and the winter swell was still up Still the bold gathered. What was going through their minds as they gazed through the mist? No shortage of blog candidates.

Our Indian Summer appears to have finally left us, with morning air temps around the 10 degree mark. The good thing is this morning's water temp of 18.4 degrees felt very tolerable. And winter mornings are always lovely. The usual suspects and some newbies gathering for the swim. Ashleigh had... Continue reading

Who else watched this epic match? What a legend, nerves of steel, brilliant all-round game, no tantrums, a class act. Look out Wimbledon! OK fangirl moment over. For now. This morning's sunrise made getting up after 3 hours' sleep worthwhile. One of the great things about winter swimming is you... Continue reading

Just before the 7am peloton hit the water we learned that Daniel had just hit the amazing 2,000km milestone. Not 200 as previously posted!. Not only that but he was also getting out of the water after having done an early boulder dash. Congrats Daniel, you're amazing! Today's sunrise was... Continue reading

Maccas? Yeeeeewwwww
Parking was going to be interesting today so I nabbed a spot near the Novotel and just had to try to capture the beauty of the early morning. Did not quite get to see the 6:30 mob off - this is them from a distance. Water temp a worrying but... Continue reading
