The good word has finally come.. The beaches are open again! Well, the Randwick side of the East Subs is at least (Bondi and the rest on Tues).

Having yesterday off my day job and the temperature hitting over 25 degrees, Jana and I hit up Gordon’s Bay for a very long awaited return to the ocean. I have to confess, I was pretty sure there were going to be half a million people crowding the beaches and water. To my surprise, however, it was actually fairly empty with everyone adhering to social distancing. Yay us!

The camera came out for a few shots, but it really wasn’t the purpose of our journey. I wanted, no NEEDED, to throw myself into the ocean. It’s amazing how much I missed the water, and it really solidifies how important the ocean is to me and my mental health. The thought of ever moving inland away from the sea is just crazy talk. I’d give up my job and go back to flipping burgers before leaving the salt. Ok well maybe that’s a bit over the edge. I’d consider moving inland if someone built me a personal wave pool to surf - consider.

What’s something you’ve realised in iso that you can’t live without? Let me know in the comments or on fb/insta!
