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

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 😆
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 😆
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

If you believe these guys, then today, as they reached Shelly for the second time (most were doing doubles, Roger had already swum 4km!), an inquisitive Port Jackson, about a metre long, swam in amongst their legs! It deliberately bumped into Greg, swam around and shoved Shelly as it came... Continue reading

Happy birthday to blogger extraordinaire, Lainey, who celebrates her XXX (<- insert number here) birthday today! She received a good birthday singing and splashing from the crowd before yelling 'Lets Go!' and racing back for tea! We were a bit worried about the supposed cold change that was due to...

They say when something is too good to be true then it usually is. (Just ask Champs and his recent online dating experience!) The only exception to this rule is the little piece of paradise that B&Bers flock to 365 days a year to get their daily dose of medicine!... Continue reading

It's not every day you see a frenzy of grey nurse rockin' it at The Steyne but on this very special night of the B &B Xmas in July, on the first week anniversary to the day of 'the unmentionable event' they were spotted moving in sync and offering an... Continue reading

Thanks Rog! The pillow actually said Martini :-)
Thanks Robyn. Sorry your green didn't quite qualify for the photo today! Next time! :-)
Thanks Anne :-)
Way too soon after the election Inge!! :-)
Michelle hadn't made her formal diagnosis at the time but yes, most likely piles! :-)
Thanks Lainey! Can't believe I forgot about adding 'no wine and alcohol!'! That was the killer for me! Have a fantastic trip! xx

Some B&Bers are naturally connected. They don't need an 'everyone wear green today' email! This is living proof. Even the keep cups were green! Luckily the raisin toast wasn't! But the morning didn't start out all green! There were lovely hues of yellows, pinks and orange too! This is the... Continue reading

As the weather man talked up the wind chill factor & significant drop in temps for the week, it didn't deter B&B swimmers and just as well! Despite a bit of a swell and a little less clarity, it was another beautiful morning of chats, milestones and sunshine! "What milestones"... Continue reading

Bees and BnBers have much in common. First and foremost, the world is in dire straits without us. We must be cared for and preserved. BnBers do a good job caring for eachother. Bees need a little more help but we are onto it. Secondly, we start with a B;... Continue reading
