Mollymook, Ulladulla represented in Blackmore’s Fund raising runs held in Sydney, Sunday September 21, 2014


Harbour Bridge to Opera House 9 km event.

Months of training was all worthwhile as local runners Heather, Simone, Karelle and daughter Grace competed in the Harbour Bridge to Opera House 9 km event.


42km Blackmore’s Sydney (full) Marathon

Not to be out done by the girls, Bobby White chose the 42 km (full) marathon. This event attracted over 3,000 competitors. His chosen charity was ‘Diabetes NSW’. Colleges at the local Milton Ulladulla Rotary Club each promised a $1 for every minute Bob could complete the marathon in under 4 hours 45 minutes. An opportunity to raise big money, Bobby gave it his all and arrived home in a time of 4 hours 44 minutes 35 seconds. He even had a young female admirer barracking for him along the route.


Redkite Charity & Parkinson Disease Charity

Heather choose to run raising funds for the Redkite charity who provide essential support to children, young people and their families suffering from cancer. Simone ran to raise funds for the Parkinson Disease Charity.

Springtime in Mollymook

Springtime arrives in Mollymook

Hey Allie and Bruce, take note of our glorious Mollymook weather. (We won’t tell you what last week was like)

Glorious sunshine in Australia greets Valarie and the girls for their return from doing it tough for 5 weeks in the USA and Hawaii.

Much has been happening, surf board riding, swimming, watching, tea bagging, photo shoots for the up coming Mollymook swimmers book “A Moment in Time”, and may I add so many are requesting a better photo of themselves, you would think the pics were for an issue of Vogue Magazine. Enjoy!

Ceto Restaurant Ulladulla – New Winter Menu

Amazing value

MUST check out Ceto’s new winter menu. Today was our third Saturday lunch in the past four weeks. We have shared lunches with a large group and on other occasions just as a couple. Absolutely delightful food, wonderful presentation and service PLUS Great value! Plus BYO!

Views to die for

Ceto would have to have the best restaurant water views. To add to the peacefulness and relaxation, we watched a number of fishing boats return with their catch and on two occasions witnessed this huge “Manta Ray” (sometimes referred to as one of the giants of the ocean) swimming below in shallow water.

More winter specials

2 course menu every night $30 and on a Tuesday night 3 courses for $50.

Last Sunday night of the month

During winter: Special events are advertised.

Young ‘Carer’ locates elderly swimmer in convalescent park!


“Ken, Where have you been? Are you OK? Missing you at the beach”. ‘Carer’

From the Crescent Heads Convalescent Park

This was a lovely message to receive. To think someone was thinking of me up here among the unemployed, elderly and grey nomads.


We arrived last Monday. On Tuesday an elderly couple arrived and set up camp next us. Asked me about my BK surf board. Went on to introduce themselves, Bob and Chris Kirby from Burrill Lakes. Come Thursday a couple set up camp on the other side of us and it was Terry and Bev Conran from Burrill Lakes. Later I met the people opposite us, they were from Broulee and were heading home to attend a surf comp at Mollymook’s Golf Course Reef on the Saturday. (Small world)


He went missing during the night and after spending much time out searching for him, once found he spent the rest of his holiday in detention.
