Gathering to honour memories of a true artist and musician

A group of artists, musicians, tango dancers and film makers gathered at the Point in Wategos to honour the passing of our good friend and inspiration, Morrice (Moshlo) Shaw.

Morrice had asked us to throw his ashes into the ocean and drink champagne in his memory.

He was a virtuoso violinist, an award winniing architect, and a brilliant tango dancer and teacher, who was largely instrumental in bringing Tango to the Northern Rivers.

He lived for many years at Byron Bay, and this was his favourite spot to meditate and reflect.

The day was fittingly perfect, and I captured these images on my iPhone to remember the occasion.

The last time I remember the ocean and the sunset being this sublime was in 1989, when I married my beautiful wife Jillian just up the hill at Australia's most Easterly Point.
