If there's a Bussel in your hedgerow

Haze and I drove down south this morning to catch the Busselton jetty ocean swim.

Over 1,300 competitors swam 3.6 kilometres around the longest timber jetty in the southern hemisphere.

(Somehow I think the first two stats here are more impressive than the one about the jetty.)

But something that was very impressive was the Irish woman who finished last. She came in a full 15 minutes after the next slowest swimmer. But hey, she traversed 3.6 kilometres of ocean under her own steam.

It was enough to make me want to dust off my budgie smugglers.
