Reflections of a Noosa summer
My Ocean Bliss - 30-Apr-2015
By Noosa-based blogger My Ocean Bliss
It's autumn already and not that that's a bad thing. We are surrounded by absolutely bliss pretty much all year round here at beautiful Noosa. I do however find myself not quite ready to leave another summer behind me yet. So before I embrace all that autumn has to offer, I'd like to share some of the splendour and bliss of my Noosa Summer.
I always plan to do much more over summer than I actually do! The truth is I just can't drag myself away from the stunning turquoise ocean here at Noosa and the bliss it brings to our life. It is my 'happy place', the location that rejuvenates my body and soul for the year ahead. Being connected to the ocean throughout summer is what you call a spiritual existence for my family. It is more than just days at the beach. It is by the ocean that we come together as a family, catch up with dear friends, and meet new friends from within our town, all over our great country and indeed the world. We watch and photograph many a perfect wave, sunrise and sunset, immerse ourselves in the divine salty sea, surf, surf, surf and forget about our cares and worries of the world.

Sitting under the cooling shade of a Pandanus tree, watching and photographing family and friends catching perfect little summer sliders and being surrounded by the beautiful summer turquoise waters of Noosa is my ultimate stay-cation. Our lazy summer days often roll on into blissful balmy evenings and impromptu gatherings. A discussion to decide 'who brings what' results in a spur of the moment picnic dinner at one of the tables along First Point. This way the family gets to catch every available wave until the very last ray of light bounces off the water (which sometimes even transitions into moon light) and we all get to bask in the delight of another gorgeous setting sun.
With sand in our toes, salt in our hair and feeling of complete contentment, we make our way home in the dark and plan the day and time that we do it all again. As busy as our little town gets and as packed as First Point becomes over summer, I just wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world.

So now we are welcoming awesome autumn to Noosa with the world famous Noosa Festival of Surfing, but that my dear friends is a whole other fabulous story!
