Spirituality

I was shooting Bronte, the mood was OK, people are still going about their morning rituals with a sense of caution. Around 7:45 am an enormous pod of dolphins darted around the point from Bondi – thrusting in the air, bombarding the lineup. They put on the most incredible show – it was kinda like Dolphins saying “Hey you land folk, tough times we know, but stay positive!”. Buses stopped, cars pulled over and people lined the coast watching the show, smiling. I heard people cheering and clapping. Ah yes, just what we all needed to start our day. It was biblical, it was spiritual, it was sensational!

Another gift – today’s surf. It’s 3-4 foot, clean, sunny and pretty much on the cook. The swell has gone north so any beach facing that way has something to ride. Bondi was tiny, neglecting the swell source as it faces the wrong way.

Most of you that live in Bondi would know Doggie. He’s always around. Well, he’s launched a range of kids boardshorts called ‘Le Dog’. Since you’re all at home, online, might as well treat yourself to some online shopping!

There’s tension in the air – but stay positive and be kind to others. No wrestling in the supermarkets over that last loaf of bread – please. C’mon. :: uge

  1. What a post! Exactly what we need. Thanks Uge.

    Lets just take all the necessary precautions we have to and then 1. turn off the f’ing anxiety causing news, 2. focus on the best case scenario (who knows whats going to happen so why not?) and 3. get in the OCEAN!!! (just not too close to me please :))

    1. Oh Uge, you know I’ve been thinking a lot about this place up the coast where I last saw dolphins right from the deck. Here you have brought the dolphins home – your timing is impeccable. Thank you.

  2. Such magnificent angels of the ocean having fun today. Thank you Uge for capturing these images and reminding us of the beauty all around us.

  3. Thanks for a beautiful, cleansing start to the morning. Missing the beaches of my hometown all the way from Tallinn, Estonia xx

  4. Dam brilliant way of restoring nature’s calm. Thank you for sharing. Best foot forward on the board.
    🙏
