Shook my wetsuit out at home after this mornings swim & this is what I added it to the Vodka I was pouring myself to warm up. Geez....6 degrees out...with a cooling westerly breeze....apparent temp. 4 degrees reportedly....Those two big sluggo' models who got out before us ( know the gents)..took a water temp of 12.4 degrees....and told Dave where to shove his reading....hahahahaha. IDIOTS ! Bravo to all the brave souls...Dave U, Dave S. and Ed (our best wishes to your Mum/grand-ma guys), Bevan,Chris & of course Sutho chasing up the rear...who then took off for another kilometre swim without us... We finished off after "polar bear' with a sensational swim down the coast & hugging the clear shoreline before the rain arrives this weekend..... ps. That cold shower felt like it was raining nails this morning . pps. Didn't see those 3 lady 'Imposters' this morning eh ?

This dawn photo shows that the great Kenneth Kingsley Palmer was looking over us all as we took a memorial swim out to the Cat and around the Pin in his memory . The first winter swim (sans Westuits) for Bevan, Chris, Dave U Dave Sanney & SBJ ...all having a 'dippy dunker' in his memory ... Linda,Tony, Chrissy, Ruth & others all there of course . Sutho taking a swim a little later. Ken's service to be held this morning at the Scots Kirk Church, Mosman. VALE KEN ! Sincerest condolences and big hugs to wife Robyn.

Just a reminder that I will be delivering the Towels to you all this Tuesday/Wednesday morning...and have orders from RBJ,Chris M., Judy, Bevan, Dave S., Sutho, Bob, Linda & Catherine. Could I ask all others to please give an order to Linda or RBJ or someone so that I can reserve one for you. There are only 30 towels specially embroidered....$35 each. DON'T MISS OUT ! Stephen BJ
