Today I got out in the ocean and surfed some waves. The feeling of jumping on a wave and trying to stand up is so much fun. I had some lessons over the last couple of years and I can’t wait to practice more. Surfing requires a lot of concentration but at the same time is so peaceful. You feel like you are at one with the ocean when you catch a wave. I decided that I am going to learn to Surf properly this year. I have at least another four months of decent beach weather before it starts to get cold in the water. It is like meditating in the ocean. You focus on the water and your thoughts slow down.
We then head to our other friends place near Coffs Harbour. They also live on one of the most beautiful beaches. Again Greg and I look into each others eyes and say why don’t we do something like this? Pack up our lives in Sydney and move up the coast. Our friends moved up here six months ago and they look so relaxed and happy. Their cute dog is loving life. I mean who wouldn’t when you get to spend your mornings walking through the sand and running in and out of the water.
Hamish I know how much you loved the ocean. I think of you every time I am in the water.
