19-Oct-2013 First Cronulla surf life saving

Saturday 19 October 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

I took Kody and Beni to Engadine pool for 10am to do their Nipper swim proficiency. Lucky it was pretty quick. Beni did it very capably, and Kody passed also, but I would say only just – she needs to do more training !

Then we went home and I dropped Beni off, just had time for a coffee then had to dash out again as I was on my first surf lifesaving patrol at Cronulla beach (South Cronulla to be more specific). I made it just on time (always difficult to park there). Everyone seemed very casual and quite young. The weather was very windy and quite cold, so I didn’t even go in the water.

I was impressed that we had 2 first aid cases on my very first patrol – a kid with a sea urchin spike in his finger and a girl who twisted her ankle. It felt that even my small role in these was more in that one afternoon that 2 whole seasons at Burning Palms!

Here is a photo of my beach:
