The Annual Tidal Pool Challenge

Andrew Van Zyl writes,

"It was an absolute privilege to be invited to the biannual Frenchie tidal pool swim in February 2018. We started at Sunrise at the St James tidal pool. With the sun just rising above the Hottentots Holland mountains we jumped in.  We had a warm welcome by one of the local cormorants as he fished for his breakfast.

The water was icy cold but oh so refreshing. The camaraderie of us all being in the cold water broke down the barriers and soon everyone was chatting away like old friends. Moving on to Dalebrook and Kalk bay the energy levels were high as we enjoyed more of the beautiful life and scenery around the pools. We called into the Olympia Café for a warm breakfast of coffee and croissants, just what was needed to refuel the tank! The rest of the day was spent relaxing by Wooleys and Glencairn tidal pools in the warm sun. We finished off the day with a yummy picnic at the Miller’s point tidal pool."
