We are missing lovely Mollymook but great reading the simmers ‘posts’ to be able to keep up with what’s happening. Photo above – just before I went in for my swim at Balmoral – beautiful and same temperature as Mollymook. I swim about 5 days a week- 2kms and by then I can’t feel my toes and have to get out, get dressed and get home quick for a hot shower to warm up. Our Beach Club is closed so no hot showers there! On a weekday at the time of the picture, the water would have 20 – 50 swimmers all over the bay (in their two’s). Most with wetsuits but some without. I even had one daughter and grandson swim with me this past Sunday at 6.45 am. Very special. Wish all the Mollymook swimmers the best. Cheers. Dick
Update on some of our Mollymook Swimmers afar during ‘Lock-Down’
Some emails filtering in from afar, on how some of our swimmers are handling the ‘lock-down’ in their home area. Dick (above) includes a pic with his news, likewise Fiona and Dave include a pic of their latest swimming hole news (below). Peter the Priest sends his regards and longs for the day he can get back down to Mollymook. Steve is also missing the ocean as too is Ben and Roger.
Roger sent through this update on what he and Ben are doing in lieu of any swimming in Canberra. “Ben’s local swimming area up here had been the Manuka Pool during the warmer months when it was open but since Easter he’s joined the gym at The Realm Hotel in Barton – which of course is now closed so no swimming at all. Fingers crossed, we’ll be out of lockdown soon however not sure what social distancing rules may mean for gyms and pools. In the meantime, lots of walking and bike riding around the lake has to suffice”.
