Walruses seen at the jetty
HAVE you seen a Walrus at the Coffs Harbour Jetty lately? You need to get up early on a Sunday morning to see one.
The Walrus Pod is a group of swimmers who meet each Sunday at the northern end of the Jetty Beach. They swim around the jetty and back again at varying paces - and with various levels of style, competence and enthusiasm (some are known only to swim at the lowest of low tides).
As waistlines expanded over the holiday season, so too did numbers in the Walrus Pod.
Recent weeks have seen a surge in numbers as regulars are joined by several other swimming types - those who aspire to take part in their first Jetty Swim and are having a few practises and others who are feeling the effects of the festive and extended holiday seasons and wish to decrease the size of their inbuilt floatation device before the Jetty Swim.
The age range of Walrus members swimming at the moment is from 10 up to 74.
So if you are thinking of having a go at the Jetty Swim on March 1 and would like to swim around with some others to get a bit familiar with the process come down to the beach on Sunday morning at 8.00am.
