Byron Bay Ocean Swim Weekend

pre-race preparations

The crowd assembles at the beach at the start of the race.

This weekend was spent in Byron Bay, as is our tradition for the first weekend in May. The annual ocean race there attracts keen swimmers, and those just keen to jump in and do the 2.2km from Wategoes Beach to Byron's Main Beach with around 2000 other competitors. The beach was crowded with speedo clad guys & girls before the race as the various waves headed out in age groups. It's hard to know where to look, with Byron in true form throwing a combination of spectacular scenery, crystal clear warm water with perfect waves, and stunning men (and women I'm told). These photos taken by one of our group while I limbered up for my swim. Its always hard leaving Byron Bay, and though it's the second time we've been there this year, I'd happily go back again and again. Thanks to our entourage for making it a fun weekend and looking after Amélie while we swam! She had a ball too. Before we know it she'll be competing too .

Goodness! it is blatantly obvious where that camera was pointed in photo 1 :P

haha i'm very very envious!!

I'm obviously making huge presumptions, but how do you go about organising leave with your job. Or do you just seize the opportunity and break away whenever you're not on ward service?

Due to the fascination towards beaches I decided to choose Byron Bay to spend few of my golden days there. I was very much confused about the accommodation there then I contacted byron bay accommodation and now I am really enjoying my stay here.
