Every year we host a Winter solstice swim for a local community cause. 
 
Winter on the Sunshine Coast is just a brilliant time of year, not to hot, and not too cold. 
 
Last year we had a beautiful day  for our Fantastic Solstice Swim.
 
A BIG thanks to our wonderful SLSC and Rotary volunteers, and our sponsors and our honorary members Cllr John Connolly and Ashley Robinson and his team, and especially our swimmers and their supporters who came out to enjoy the swim.  
 
Hopefully we've started a few conversations about Domestic Violence, that has caused so much tragedy here on the coast.
 
Supt Darryl Johnson gave a talk on the role that White Ribbon is playing in addressing this tragic issue, and Lynda Fraser and Greg Nash were there in the White Ribbon tent, and Peter and Monique from IGA Wises Road were there with water and fruit to welcome the exhausted swimmers home. 
 
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. 
 
Here are some pictures of a fantastic day...a new day dawns at Alex Headland
