There is a group of intrepid folk in Flinders who get together each morning for a swim from the pier to the yacht club and back. Sean and I joined in the fun, meeting at 7:30am. Although we did not swim every morning as do some hardy souls. With the tide out, the swim to the yacht club was very shallow. On these days, we swam out to the boats, around the pier and back to the beach.
When the weather is calm, the water is very clear and swimming is like flying. The seabed is rippled sand, seagrass and kelp. Over the sand, we kept a watch for the odd crab or a sting ray. The seagrass is home to Victoria's marine emblem, the Weedy Sea Dragon. Shy and well disguised, they are hard to spot but we kept a sharp eye our nonetheless!
A great way to start the morning!
