Another Glorious Week in Paradise

.

  • The highlight was Casey on her short board. Her smile was so big! On a slide show it even gets bigger. What a way to start the day.
  • The ‘Elite’ athletes beginning their day – with a photo shoot! (Ollie was so excited he almost bounded up into the crystal clear pond.)
  • The Golf Club reflection in the pond formed by the high tides.
  • Young Matt does a much better job on the surf board than his Mum. (No ambulance required either)
  • Another beautiful morning, May 29 and the water temp is still around 21 – 22 degrees.
  • Ben’s place, almost ready for that big house warming party he promised with free beer and wine.
  • And the girl’s went – WOW!

May 2014 News

Plenty happening in this idyllic place, Mollymook.

  • Pete Humphries, where is he these days, they ask? Well the young reporter paid Pete a visit the other day at his building site. “He said well you know when to turn up, we are just finishing up for the day.” Take a look at Pete’s face covered in cement. They had been pouring most of the day beside fitting steel work into the water tank. It will be some house when its finished.
  • Feedback from last weeks article on Grant Kenny: “You two would have to have a body and face lift to look like Grant Kenny. And a sun ray lamp. Thanks for the laugh”. Allie
  • Christmas in May: Yes a special occasion, Jackie finally got out of bed and made a belated return to the ocean. And guess who she swam with? Grant Kenny!
  • The Kids from Cape York: Back on deck with their bundle of joy and sent through this pic below, taken of the amazing sunrise from their Garside home deck.
  • “Popeye” the photographer paid us a visit and took these beautiful images of the “Bogey Hole” and “A Lady and her companion”.

What could the warmest May

A rare feat:

Almost unheard of, a baby born to one of the Mollymook ocean swimmers.

“But they are all too old I can hear you saying”!

Well the young couple from the gulf gave birth yesterday Thursday May 22 to a beautiful baby girl Coco.

To Michelle and Andrew, heartiest congratulations from the Mollymook Ocean swimmers. You have done us proud. (For many of the swimmers, the joy experienced at the birth of a child is a distant memory).

A dark grey morning greeted the swimmers which didn’t lend itself well for taking photo’s. Nonetheless the young reporter was quickly summons from the gym when a pod of dolphins arrived.

A little like the fisherman telling you about the big one that got away. Where were you? you should have seen this dolphin clear out of the water! The young reporter ran to his car to get hold of his camera, he was welcomed back, “where have you been” they’re gone!

Once again when there is some fun to be had in the surf the boys ask; where is John?
