The annual pilgrimage to Byron Bay for the Winter Whales Byron Bay Ocean Swim 2011
The official ocean swims season is winding up and is traditionally farewelled with the Winter Whales event in Byron Bay on the NSW north coast on the first weekend in May.
For the last three years Mr and Mrs Snorkel and I have travelled north in the hope of fine weather and divine swimming conditions. And we've always been well rewarded.
This year Ms Onyabike is along for the ride. She's keen to have a geek at the royal nuptials on Friday night, but we warned her not to bugger up our routine - drinks and a relaxed dinner at a cosy bistro followed by a stroll around town - all because of someone's wedding. Hasn't she heard of 'highlights'?
