Mollymook Ocean Swimmers, New Year’s Day 2022
Over 30 swimmers swam on New Year’s day, some missing from the pic got an early start, driving up to the north end and some others arrived late. First group of swimmers to arrive back at south Molly were Tim, Ray, and John, however some were of the belief that they took off ahead of the starter’s gun. So actual finishing positions are being reconsidered. Altogether about 30 odd swimmers were counted in the water. Special thanks to Kate, Simone, Robbie, Cheryl and Chris for providing water safety. (Birthday wishes to Robbie whose birthday was on the 2nd. Simone’s and Leckshe Losal whose birthday is today January 3.)

Saturday was a beautiful day. Happiness was written all over the faces of the 80 or more family and friends who witnessed and shared in this special occasion for the union in marriage of these two lovely people. And yes it did rain, but no one was worried, the joy of the occasion far out weighed any occasional rain.

June 2021, Mike brings ‘Beatlemania’ to Mollymook
Night of Nights, the Beatles re-visited.
Wikipedia, give the following explanation in regard to Beatlemania. They say that the name of ‘Beatlemania’ was due the fanaticism surrounding the English rock band the Beatles in the 1960s. The press adopted the term “Beatlemania” to describe the scenes of adulation that attended the band’s concert performances. From the start of 1964, their world tours were characterised by the same levels of hysteria and high-pitched screaming by female fans, both at concerts and during the group’s travels.
Today, 2021 some 60 years on and we continue to see the female fans loving the ‘Beatles’ regardless of their age. The Beatles revisited event at the Mollymook Surf Club was an enormous success, thanks to Mike turning 64, supported by Ray, Llyod, Gerry, Tim and Dave. What a night, with so many getting into the spirit of the event wearing some amazing costumes and make-up.
August 2021, OUTCOMES from an extended lockdown
A number of swimmers entered the water in an endeavour to recapture their former surfing skills. Onlookers became dumbstruck, as they witnessed first hand the devastating effects the lockdown has apparently had, as these former top class athletes, struggled in their exercise routine.
The lock down continues in August – Exercise in two’s being watched by a couple of birds!
It was Saturday and within the lock down rules the boys did their exercise in two’s. GOOD BOYS?
Well they were suppose to be solely doing their exercise, but when boys know they are being watched by some beautiful birds, they go all out to impress.
Also during lock down in August, Ed takes Andrew out to teach him body surfing
It’s November and the storm clouds were a coming
