Looking forward to a great swim.
Looking forward to the swim, it was a little rough getting out through the waves. A lot of swimmers entered at 1/2 way.
What a sunrise. A bit white water today, my flippers came in handy to get out to the point.
Michelle & Martin, ready to enjoy a special swim together.
A couple that swims together - stays together! Its even more fun to share our swim with a loved one.
Girls of Manly B & B.
Peta, looking very casual & relaxed on her push bike.
Merryl and Napoleon. Looking great together. Although Napoleon was a little distracted by the birds.
Stunning colours today in the sunrise.
These guys are very funny, Roger & Derek. They have a lead with no dog?
These dogs made us all look twice today. What a size difference!
The gang heading out through the waves.
I really enjoyed my swim today, hope you all did too.
Have a great day, Jenny :))
