My Jacques Cousteau Moment

I made my hot cross bun dough first thing this morning (Tip: robes with flappy sleeves are not optimum attire for kneading) and then went for a walk and a swim as we waited for the dough to rise. The water is positively lake-like today - such a contrast to the wild surf last weekend. Ideal conditions for swimming around the rocks at the northern end of the beach where we were surrounded by hundreds, maybe THOUSANDS, of mado. Mado are small black and white striped plankton-eating fish with vibrant yellow tails. I don't have a photo of my own but there is one on the Australian Museum website HERE and another image HERE.
