There’s something magical about living by the ocean. Maybe it’s the powerful energy created from the endless movement of water that draws us in and keeps us close to its heart. Or the smell of a sea breeze that wafts past and invokes memories of long summer hazes, whirling, breaking water and salty sun kissed skin.
Whatever the magic may be, each and every one of us has a special connection with the ocean. It’s water. It’s what we’re made up of. It’s a part of us. The ocean is in us. Every one of us. Our connection with the sea is ingrained in us and is represented through the way we live our lives as coastal dwellers. It’s a feeder of good vibes and positive energy. Whether it’s walks on the beach, sunrise surfs , jumping and splashing about in the water or just feeling the sea breeze through our hair, living by the ocean is apart of who we are as east coast locals, as island inhabitants and Australians.
