Friendship : Byron Bay : Buy Print

The water temperature in Byron Bay is unbelievable!

The 25+ degree days, mixed with a 20+ degree ocean. Ahhhhh, heaven. The sun is high in the summer’s sky, as the sweat smoulders upon your skin. Our bodies are made up of 60% water, and as one dives into the turquoise water, we feel refreshed and at one with our maker. The ocean is our sanctuary today, yesterday and tomorrow.

Hours upon hours we can play in the ocean. Unafraid of being cold. The swell of last week is but a distant memory, but a few lines of hindsight drift into the Pass, as the sun goes down on another week in Byron Bay.

Come up for a swim this weekend!
