The gang arrive at the Silverton Hotel


It has been a memorable trip thus far, other than Pat and Louise hitting an Emu at about 100 kms / hour, only slight damage to their vehicle.

On many occasions I had wished I could have gone on the group bike rides organised by Bobby and later by Heather and John L. Now I have done it (on this road trip) and it has been a wonderful experience. Being time poor I have just included a few pics to convey the beauty we have enjoyed throughout this trip thus far.

A new beginning (we hope) as Spring arrives in Mollymook Milton Ulladulla


Spring has arrived here in Mollymook Milton Ulladulla, a Southern Right Whale and calf swim so close to Mollymook Beach, sightseers lined up along the walk way (keeping social distance) it was an incredible sight. At the Ulladulla harbour we had our seal waiting to be fed, blossoms springing up everywhere and the birds nesting. A Beautiful sight considering the year we have just experienced, bush fire, floods then the corona pandemic. As a local it has almost been ‘life in a majestic and beautiful area’ other than obeying all the guidelines associated with the pandemic and hoping that visitors are being vigilant and considerate, taking to heart the guidelines put out by NSW Health Dept.

The Tilpa Hotel on the Darling River


Clare, Bob and Gareth spent a couple of days at the crowded country village of Tilpa on the Darling River, especially spending time at the Tilpa Hotel. (Bob and Gareth were among the original Mollymook early morning swimmers and played a huge roll in getting our original ocean swim up and running back in 2003)

Step back in time: Visit Historic Grenfell


Enjoyed a wonderful experience, visiting the historic town of Grenfell.

Grenfell Caravan Park: Bob awakes, after sleeping the night in his tent. (The temperature was below zero on this occasion).


Grenfell’s history is so evident as you stroll down the main street and visit some of its old buildings and spend time talking to local character’s, some who have spent a lifetime living in Grenfell. The town came into being as a result of gold being found back in 1866. A highlight was to visit O’Briens Hill and take a walk through the old gold diggings and shaft where so much gold was found and view the remnant mining machinery.

We camped at the local Grenfell caravan park which we found to be very clean and conveniently located within walking distance into town and to numerous points of interest viz. the magnificent aquatic centre, Company Dam, the Silos, Historic Railway station, the Chrysler Car Museum, Visitor Information centre and so much more. Found Clare at the Visitors centre to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Mollymook swimmer, Lena back in Germany

Lena, safe and sound back in her home town


Lena writes from Germany to give an update for her friends, the local Mollymook Ocean swimmers.

“It has been a busy past few weeks. I passed my other exam and in the end it all worked out well. I am working, trying to write all my essays and get a lecturer to help me with my bachelor thesis. 

I thought the situation here would be worse, but apart from having to wear a mask inside, having barely any bars open and just a few social get together’s with not many people and usually outdoors, it isn’t too bad. My only concern is that we are heading straight into winter and most of the things we are doing so far can’t work then. But I guess time will bring the answer. 

Hope you are all doing well! Attached photos of my home town and my weekend off work where we have been in the Netherlands at the coast, with what we call “waves” from a really strong wind”.

Miss you all, love Lena.
