I start most days with a swim in the ocean at Apollo Bay. On this day there was small clean swell and an offshore wind. Both were welcome after a week or more of easterlies and no real swell. I decided to play in the shorebreak this morning rather than swim my usual 1-1.5kms.
I swam about 300m from the southern end of the beach near the harbour wall to where the green lines of swell were breaking over the sandbar. I body surfed some waves, duck-dived under others, took a few photos and generally floated around feeling as happy as a seal.
Danni detoured via the shorebreak on the return leg of her swim.
