BOLD & BEAUTIFUL IS NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING DUE TO THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING INSIDE AS MUCH AS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) What a morning! There is a distinct 'winter is here' chill in the air but for those up early to witness the sunrise, the... Continue reading

BOLD & BEAUTIFUL IS NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING DUE TO THE IMPORTANCE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING INSIDE AS MUCH AS IS POSSIBLE DUE TO CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19). Also remember to try swimming at different times of the day if possible and only exercise in pairs while maintaining 1.5m to 2m distance.... Continue reading

Hi Belinda, mermaids and I say thank you! Beach is officially closed but open for exercise. Sign says 'Swim at own risk' as the lifeguards are not officially on duty. Car parking in Manly now has a 1 hour limit. Hope that helps :)

The Mermaids are back! Since their first sighting two weeks ago and the beach now officially closed, Coral and Pearl have been adapting to life on land continuing to help curb Covid by staying at home. If they do make it down to the beach for exercise only, they always... Continue reading

This made me so happy! Pleased it entertained you both in these uncertain times - mission accomplished! :) xx
As does your feedback - thanks Jackie!
Hahahaha the pressure is on, Ian!!! Thinking these Mermaids need to get busy in that time! :)
If I open up the blog it is reverting me back to this page where I can't publish again?
Thanks! Hoping to bring a smile to all of us missing the swim. Being trying to find how to overwrite and failing - can someone email me the steps on how to do it? Have updated the message on this page and facebook's in the meantime.
Thanks Juliette! Miss swimming with you both (although Andrew can keep the big waves to himself!). Stay safe and sane!
Thanks - know this is a tough time for all of us so hoping to bring a smile to everyone's faces! Been trying to overwrite but not sure how to do it - have updated both the comments here and on facebook with the new messaging. Is someone able to email the steps on how to overwrite the blog?
Thanks all for the great feedback! The Mermaids and I would like to amend the blog end messaging so it says the following: A reminder: The Bold &Beautiful swim has been suspended until further notice. If you are out and about at this time, please take care, be safe and adhere to recommended guidelines. Summer Badges We are aware that some people missed out on their hard-earned summer badges last weekend. Assuming that it is safe and legal to do so, Anne and Ian will be at the benches from 8 until 8.30 am on Saturday so that you can purchase your badges. Please bring the correct money and maintain personal distancing protocols. Note that, it is OK to log your swims while the B&B is suspended, but there will be no badges awarded while the suspension applies. This will affect the winter badges if (as appears likely) the suspension is not lifted by the end of winter. B&B Blog In an effort to keep you engaged during this difficult time our blogging team want to hear from you. Our bloggers have free reign during this time, so if you have photos or anything interesting to share, you can send it to our bloggers at boldandbeautifulmanly@gmail.com. Show us how you are spending your time in isolation. What is your favourite B&B memory or photo? Tell us why you love the group so much. We will share your stories and photos on the blog over the coming months. Please show your appreciation of our blogging team by commenting at the bottom of the blog. It is also possible that, in these difficult times, you have a need that someone in the B&B community may be able to fulfil (eg do you need somewhere to live, are you isolated and need help with shopping, or have you run out of toilet paper?). Feel free to ask in the comments at the bottom of the blog. Above all, stay safe. Bluewater Cafe Like all restaurants, Bluewater Cafe has had to limit its activities to takeaway only. I am informed however that they will still provide the B&B breakfast for you to takeaway. The new owners Jane and Kwan have continued to support the B&B so let's try and help them through this difficult time. Find more details on their current menu and operations on their Instagram page @bluewatercafemanly (Facebook page coming soon).
Thanks Jenny! Great question - might need to get our community to come up with suggestions!

Goodness me what a few weeks it has been and certainly will be to come too. Self isolation is definitely the way to curb Covid but it doesn't half test our mental yearning for freedom or make us miss our collective morning swim starts. Today's blog is brought to you... Continue reading

Dear readers, did you know there is a group of adventurous 6am swimmers that do Wednesday Ins and Outs? They bravely set off with their torches, swim along the stinger special coastline then play in and out of the waves each week. They are definitely living up to the *bold*... Continue reading
