Nothing beats morning swim

NOTHING beats a morning swimming and chatting with friends.

A group of keen swimmers from various walks of life meet each morning at the creek in Kingscliff to keep up their fitness levels and catch up on what's new.

Lorraine O'Sullivan said the spot was "ideal to sit in the shade and chat."

The group of up to 10 includes sparkies, ex-navy personnel and a greenkeeper.

"We're a varied group and it makes for some very interesting conversations," said Vance Riddell.

"It's very peaceful and tranquil at Kingscliff.

"There's no hustle and bustle or pressure."

Steve Mellor likes the laidback atmosphere.

"It's a pity about the beach erosion," he said.

"But I guess that's a natural occurrence."
