It's that time of year and there is no better way than to celebrate after a Sunday morning swim than to have coffee and cake at the Blue Bay Cafe. With the water temperature around 19 degrees the number of swimmers has increased significantly as has their supporters. Young Jackson is there to cheer on his mum, Julie. Some would suggest, unkindly perhaps, that his big motivation for showing up is only matched by the size of the scone he orders. It's also an expensive morning when Corinne and Karen have ordered up big after their walk to Anthony's Nose and back as they follow the swimmers along the beach. Monday night training, Wednesday afternoon and Sunday morning swims will continue over the festive season in preparation for many who are signed up for Lorne Pier to Pub and a number of Bay swims. Best wishes to all!
