Even though it's winter (well, cool in the water for the locals), we are full steam ahead at Tonga Swimming!. We are training some great volunteer swim coaches and they will be teaching in their villages at the beach. There are 2 local girls (Poli and Mele) who are developing as our swim assistants. It has been a steep learning curve for them as until recently they hadn't hear of butterfly stroke.

We are also doing sessions with the Navy (yes - bring on all the Sailor jokes!) and adult learn to swim and masters. By September we will have the whole island swimming!

I have put a few team pictures - see if you can spot Jan.

Is that a Tongan pixie on Jann's head???
Loving reading about your adventures, and the logo for the TSAA is great!. Cuppa on the beach with whales sounds like a perfect Sunday. Here - we're waiting for snow. It's falling in Oberon and on its way. Late season whale- watching sounds very tempting! Lots of love to you both, Sharron xxx
