The Morning Sun Blues


Morning Spray : Byron Bay : Buy Print

Waking up. Cloudy dreams.

Doesn’t matter. Out the door. The sand touches your toes. It is blue I see, as Midnight Oil would say, a “blue sky mine”.

Still and quiet, thoughts wander of the day ahead, a flicker of Spring Northerly upon your neck, humid sweats as the low tide sand becomes your cycling highway.

Mornings are where life begins, so good morning to you all as we sing the “morning sun blues” from Byron Bay.

Byron Bay Yoga and Surf Retreat
15th-27th November 2011

There’s just four days left before we all get into the stunning Samudra Bryon Bay surfing & Yoga retreat for 6 or 12 days of unadulterated pleasure immersing ourselves in clean, raw and organic food, yoga ,surfing and the pristine beaches of Byron Bay.

Samudra’s annual Byron Bay retreat kicks off on Monday the 15th and with bookings almost full, there are still a few spots left to book in and completely retreat from the world for one or two weeks.

Staying in beach cottages in the forest and close to the beach, the Tallows’ Beach Houses are the perfect location for this amazing retreat. Head yoga instructor Zephyr Mercer is already based in Byron and says with the upcoming fine weather and small group, the retreat will be particularly special and guests well attended to.

For more information or to make a booking, please go to Samudra Yoga or phone (08) 9779 9977
