wow, I did my second patrol for one of my favorite surf clubs cept for the instructor that gave such a hard time getting my bronze...
knowing that I could have past the bronze a month sooner
just for the privilege of competing with surf lifesavers from all over Oz
about the same age as me...
as I fight hard against the aging process...
(
some of our young members eagerly swam out int their rescue tubes to a bloke and a neighbor of mine were in distress waving for a little help as the rip took and they lost their footing...they found their way back on their own with a little coaxing from our lifeguards
I watched our first rescue (almost) from the perch of the trailer... waiting for my chance to be a hero for a day...
while the news stations filmed our club just by chance....
