Another beautiful morning to swim across to Shelly. Water visibility was stunning and the temp refreshing (MDP and many winter warriors having no issues without a wetsuit). Sun is starting to shine earlier, the BnB fam seems to be steadily growing in numbers each morning and the conditions were postcard... Continue reading

Well, not in Manly but in some parts of the world winter swims are truly arctic. Today was a balmy 16.3 degrees (thanks as always Guy). After being out of the water for a week, I felt like I was heading in for an arctic swim this morning... Before the... Continue reading

This morning Mother Nature whipped up impressive conditions, for viewing. There were a few brave individuals swimming a shorter lane across from fairy bower; while the rest watched the sets rolling in, with coffee in hand. Have a nice start to the week all! Stay safe (and dry). Continue reading

One thing is for sure, Manly is a slice of paradise this long weekend. Sun is shining, water is warm and clearing up and the vibe around town is energising – holiday on the doorstep. With many heading away and many staying local, thought we would check in on the... Continue reading

Manly turned on the great weather this morning, after what feels like an intense La Niña. The water was flat, sun was warm and Bold & Beautiful fam was out in force today. Many familiar faces and a few new ones (welcome!!!) congregating at the point before we headed to... Continue reading

One of many topics of conversation this morning was alarm or natural wakeup? Regardless of what wakes you up, a B&B swim sends a lot of us into the day with the much loved buzz. Great to see the water is returning to it's beautiful colour and visibility. The big... Continue reading

Chatting this morning looking at the waves crashing in, we were extra appreciative of what we have as the B&B swim is temporarily on a (weather driven) hiatus.

To start the swim, the point express rip was running well today, providing a fast trip out. Big congratulations to everyone who took part in the Cole... Continue reading

The sun was shining and Fleetwood Mac’s tune Monday Morning was pleasantly rolling through my mind - “Monday morning you sure look fine”. While I swam to Shelly, the line “Friday I got traveling on my mind” was a happy thought, thinking of friends and family who are getting the... Continue reading

A level of calm has returned to the B&B swim, making for an enjoyable morning after some rather rough and challenging days. There was just enough swell to create a small ‘point express’ rip, which is always a welcomed gift at the start of a swim. One of the locals... Continue reading
