Continuing our 'training' (hilarious!) for the City to Surf walk/run on Sunday, Aimee and I were striding down the West Coast Highway when we happened upon a group who probably defined the word 'training' a little more accurately than we did!! Passing the Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club we were just in time to see the 'youth' (14 - 17 yr old) group doing their training as the sun was disappearing below the horizon. They lined up with their boards and raced out through the surf to a certain spot, turned, paddled back to the beach, lined up again and continued this exercise a dozen times, exhausting just to watch. There's also a younger group of children aged between 5 - 13 year olds (nippers) who train at a separate time and with more supervision. These dedicated young people (more) grow up to do an amazing job patrolling and keeping our beaches a safer place...it actually did spur us on with more determination to go just 'that little bit further'.....!!
