Whale watching on the South Coast

When it comes to whale watching, Australia is one of the best places in the world to see these beautiful mammals in the wild. There are at least 45 species of whales, dolphins and porpoises found in the waters around Australia with the numbers of whales migrating along the NSW South Coast growing each year reports Tourism NSW

Issi shows Ross how its done

.

Ross, the art to body surfing is all about timing your launch onto the wave, picking a direction, kicking and stroking hard with feet and arms, then using ones back and outstretched arm, to ride the wave both sideways and downward.

.
Garry J. explains the key to exiting a wave safety is to roll sideways into the back of wave until one exits out the back where the wave is no longer breaking. In stronger waves, the same maneuver applies, however the surfer must apply greater force to exit.

Whales off ‘Flat Rock’ this morning

John and Jacqui write: On board the Murray River paddle steamer discovered the above at APEX Park on the river bank where there is a stretch of sandy beach. It’s a pic of the operating Mildura Surf Life Saving Club house and the locals call this, their swimming beach. It was a hot day 39 deg and we were tempted to have a swim until we saw a large brown snake swimming along. No patrol members there mid week, but would have loved to have met a member of what we believe to be the only inland surf club in Australia.

.

The Mildura Lifesaving Club was first established in the 1960s in a community driven response, according to its President Greg Rhodes, to a series of drownings that had occurred. Drownings still occur, with the latest in Mildura in late 2013, when a man disappeared into the water, and though he signaled for help, his friends were not able to reach him. It occurred at a time when life savers were not on patrol. Royal Life Saving Australia released a review in 2014 which placed the Murray at the top of a list of Australia’s most deadly rivers. But Rhodes says he doesn’t believe it deserves such a title.

Thought for the day:

The Train:  At birth we boarded the train & met our parents, & we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train & they will be significant, i.e. – our siblings, friends, children & even the love of your life. Many will step down & leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don’t realize they vacated their seats. The train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes & farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give of ourselves. The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, & offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down & leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success & give lots of love.
More importantly, thank God for the journey & thank you for being my friend.
