How did you find this morning - dark, a little drizzly, and oh so warm under the doona? Well, if motivation lost out to comfort, you missed a special day.
It was disappointing there was no spectacular sunrise to capture for the blog. Instead the grey cloud and light rain that made everything look grainy. Ok, there was a little grumbling until a man with a sunny smile caused me to adjust my perspective; to be in the present and look at what is around you.
The grey morning brings out the beautiful steely blue in the rocks around the point.
There is also the inventiveness of sharing a warm shower after the early morning swim.
The togetherness of welcoming friends.
Or the camaraderie of early morning Queensie swim.
While we might have been looking to the sky for that special blend of pink and blue, here it was in the middle of the squad!
The visibility was great today – who needs sun!! While waiting at Shelly it was worth keeping your face in the water ‘cause you never know what will swim past. Thanks and apologies to the squad that patiently waited at Shelly for those distracted by the marine life. Thankfully, the water is warm(ish).
So if the turtle was not astonishing enough, the cuttlefish put on a display! Just off Shelly I was delighted to see one swim by, then stop and change colour. Then the reason for this behaviour became apparent – and even bigger cuttlefish!! WOW.
All this frolicking took it toll and I was caught in a school crossing zone. . .
The lovely serenity of the morning was all around us – it is just a matter of taking a moment to adjust your perspective...
'cause there is always someone pleased to see you down at the swim.
Have a great day;
