Water Babies!

Water Babies!

These two cuties are my nieces. I think it’s fair to say I can safely assume they share my love of being in the water!

Wow, yesterday I was up early. Very excited about getting to go diving with my friends Matt and Rebecca at a super secret military location…super luxurious beach to ourselves!

The diving was a little average, but the spot was pretty sensational and it was lovely to be back in the ocean…especially with water as warm as it was yesterday…


Then they dropped me back at my brother’s house where I borrowed a car and headed to Coogee beach. Yep, you read that right, there’s a beach here called that too, though apparently it’s pronounced differently. I met up with the lovely Claire Green from 4SEASons who has recently moved over here and we got in a bit of a swim session.


It was pretty stunning…warm water, white sand and clear water. We did have a giggle that there were at least a dozen lifeguards on duty for about 35 swimmers, tops!

The beach was a pretty cool location. Two pontoons…one with a slide on it, were moored just off shore, plus there was a great jetty with different ladders and spots you could climb up and jump off. It was really well set up and we had a lovely swim around pontoons, followed by the mandatory post-swim coffee on the beach.



So that was a pretty full on day. A swim, and then a post-swim swim. I was looking forward to some food and a shower and getting out of my swimmers.

Until I got home and these two talked me into a dip their backyard pool!


How could I say no?

Happy Holidays!

Hi everyone, break in normal programming..and training. I’m currently in Western Australia for a ginormous family Christmas. I’m managing to fit in some fabulous pool swims…working on those tumble turns, a splash in the dam with the yabbies, plus my sister in law dragged me along to a KiMax class. On a related note, did you know you can get sore forearm muscles? It’s very odd!

I’ve been splitting time between my brothers place and sister’s farm, so my attentions have been very focused on some kind of cute kids I don’t get to see very often. I’ve quickly become a master of coloring in, guess who, and hide and seek! Internet is a bit limited too, but the camera has been working overtime and I’ll be back with plenty of new posts in the new year!

Enjoy your holidays, however you celebrate, and just keep swimming!
