Bondi to Bronte

Well... it was meant to be the annual Bondi to Bronte ocean swim... but organizers determined Bronte surf was too gnarly (dumping waves onto shallow sand bar), but that's the challenge - Bronte surf is always gnarly. Anyway, they erred on the side of caution and altered the course into a giant 2km loop in Bondi. I wanted an ocean swim not a pool paddle!

Disappointed about the change of course or dismayed by the appearance of those in my age group!?

Below: Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is in the red and black stripes at the far side. Yes that is the Prime Minister of Australia! There were a couple of policemen on hand, and media, but so casual. As if to underscore the lack of threat, his starting gun is a whistle.


Conditions were perfect, and I felt strong... kicked and whacked as good as I got this time!
