The Locked in Challenge - 10 photos of my bathroom in 10 days.

It's not as though we are really that locked in, I mean the beach is still a short walk away and we are allowed to exercise whenever we want, as long as we are alone or with one other person who lives in our household, but when someone issues a challenge....

I'm not doing myself any favours by staring off with the easy ones, but if I run out of inspiration I can come back in a few days and change the title to "four photos in four" days I suppose!

Beaches Closed

The beach is closed, but the water temperature is already down to 23°C so who'd want to swim in that?  There are so few people about that the lifeguard hasn't changed the notice in three days.

The little white spec on the horizon tells another story, it is the cruise ship "Wind Spirit", which along with the "Carnival Spirit", "Sea Princess" and "Pacific Dawn" are drifting or anchored not far from shore, apparently homeless.   

Strange times.

Surf Lifesaving School

"Nippers" is the name given to the smallest of the Surf Life Saving Fraternity - every summer weekend hoards of them arrive at Surf Clubs to learn basic water craft, and compete in organised events.    Thanks to the tireless band of parents and club members who pretty much dedicate their entire weekend to educationg the next generation of life savers.

 Etymology - in English "Nipper" was a name often given to a young lad who was fleet of foot -"nipping" or darting around.  In Australia, it's also the name given to the pincer on a crab or lobster, so there's a nice connection between energy and the sea!
