Venus, from Italian artist, Botticelli's famous painting, 'The Birth of Venus', has decided not to emerge from the sea today. She popped her head up, took one look around and said, 'COVID what? Bugger that', I'm staying in the safety and calm of the ocean today. When this April Fool's... Continue reading

As Scomo's daily announcements continue to significantly change the way we live - we at the B&B are embracing these changes! Why? Because 'Change is as good as a holiday'! and if we can't go on holidays, then this is the next best thing! Social distancing gives us the big... Continue reading

There were two schools of thought, in addition to schools of fish, on the conditions of the swim today! Sue Marinan gave it thumbs down with words along the lines of gloomy, dark, bumpy, wet, cold! Ros Ex and Petra, on the other hand, thought it was fabulous, glorious, beautiful... Continue reading

Never turn your back on the ocean - it has all manner of tricks up its sleeve as Georgina, Melise and Jo (who is in the photo but mostly underwater) discovered on their bumpy but fun ride back into the beach this morning! Speaking of morning - it started off... Continue reading

On first look I thought Rainer had photobombed this great pic of Merrilee and Georgina, sporting a bit of extra facial hair. On closer examination, realised it was Merrilee's dog, Napoleon, who wanted to be front and centre of the Big Reveal! What is the 'Big Reveal' you ask? It's... Continue reading

How did you begin your day? Louise, Monica, Jane (and 277 other B&B swimmers) started with an invigorating swim, relishing the salt air, sun, warm water and stopping on the way for a chat with a guy who looked like.... well..that he was just casually walking past..... not walking across...

You missed the but - finger and so far no challenges to the top 20 swimmers!! Its your lucky day!! πŸ˜†
Don't thank me Shelley, thank Brian! πŸ˜†
Thanks Lainey loo! Always good material to write about at the b&b. Just wondering when you are going to give Roger Ingram his cheese grater. He said himself he's been hanging to read a violent movie.
Daniel - its not an official event but every time you swim & log your swim your kms are recorded. You can check how many kms you've swum throughout the year by clicking on the mini challenge in the daily view. It's quite prestigious to end up in the top 20 swimmers at the end of the year based on the number of kms you've swum! Most of the people in the top 20 swim between 3 and 6 (or more) kms a day so its pretty hard to get there but give it a go!! You can click on the 2020 mini challenge icon to see how many kms you've recorded this year already (assuming you log your swims!)
Thanks Jac! Good material again today special thanks to Brian πŸ˜†
The challenge is on! These 6 swimmers (spot the 6th) were in the top 20 swimmers of 2019 mini challenge and were getting a bit cocky about it this morning! SO.... the challenge is ON to knock them out of the 2020 20! Are you up for the challenge??? It... Continue reading

The end of the year is here, Christmas is around the corner, stress levels are high, our 'to do' lists are longer than the leg of Michael Sheehan's pyjama pants, there's smoke on the water, ash on the beach but that didn't deter B&Bers who found time to dress up... Continue reading

Thanks very much for this great information & offer of help Julia. I will pass onto John with your email address!
Shiny happy people - we should write a song about that!!! WAIT - too late!!! Thanks R.E.M! They must have been for a BnB swim
Thanks Mary! Good conditions = happy people!! :-)
This lovely crew were all smiles today after a smooth ride to Shelly & back with no ash nor leaves clinging to their bodies making the swim just that bit more challenging! Instead - we were blessed with aquarium conditions - but no fish photos as blog camera is still... Continue reading

Thanks Lainey! Your photos made the day look awesome even if it actually wasn't πŸ˜†
You look like you are frolicking in a warm spa bath! Nothing like a bit of fake news made up from the comfort of a warm bed with others out in the field doing the real work!
Me too πŸ˜†
All Lainey's photo skills as usual!
Good to hear Andrew is ok!
"Is it raining? I hadn't noticed!" Andie McDowell, Four Weddings and a Funeral. Correction! Jo Gregory, Bold and the Beautiful. Jo elegantly and unphasedly (is that a word? If not, it is now!) entered the water at Shelly in gale force winds and rain, making it look as enjoyable and... Continue reading
