Just a selection of photos we took in and around Byron Bay earlier in the year, minimal, yes, because sometimes you need to disconnect for a little bit, replace the camera in your hand with grains of sand, a late night icecream or instead, wrapping them tightly around your bars as you ride your bike up unfamiliar roads, to meet people you have never met, for coffee. Some one pretty amazing, told me that for the Traditional Owners the – Arakwal Bumberlin people, this place was special, not only for its natural beauty but for the fact that neighboring clans and people of the Bundjalung nation would use it as a meeting place. There are few places i have been in Our fine country that still have such a strong spiritual pull, I believe that the spirits that met here, result, in what is now a transient lifestyle for most who pass through here, for those that are not of this land – Byrons Beaches, the Arts & Music, & the nuturing souls of the Creative district and its laid back lifestyle, will make the initial impact. But there is something else, that sews a little seed deep inside, that i don’t think will ever leave.
There will always be that pull, to lure you back, for a week, a month, maybe even a few years, to repair, refresh and resolve whatever it is in your heart that you need. from the first sunrise you feel warm your face at the pass, it is done. you are infected. byron will get under your skin, and you will make your way back. someday, somehow.
