Back we are with the travels of our guest Bashful
New years eve for us usually involves staying put at home with all the furries..of course we were away this time so we needed to do something a bit different.
We decided to spend the day at the Great Barrier Reef.
I have had the absolute joy of visiting this reef 4 times..this time we were at the top part of the reef so I was really looking forward to this!
The company we went with was http://www.silverseries.com.au and the catamaran we took was the Silverswift which left from Cairns.
The day started early in the morning..on board all drinks and morning teas were included and the lunch was a smorgasboard of salads and cold meats and prawns, hot meals and breads the whole works also afternoon tea, cakes and cheeses and crackers and we would be glad because with 3 different reef stops and a total of 5 hours in the water we worked up a huge appetite!
Please enjoy a snorkel with us as we show you our own beautiful Wonder of the world..and yes I noted some coral bleaching has occurred and so we must all play our part in being gentle with the environment ..as much as this Great Barrier Reef is Australian through and through it belongs to YOU to..it is there for the whole world and let us hope it continues to be.
I hired an underwater camera for the day as I was not keen on fiddling with settings etc and knew he camera would be already set for the underwater pictures..the photographer, continuing our small world discussion used to live in our state not far from hubbies uncle and was in the CFA there..small world..
I will continue with our New Years Eve tomorrow! have a great day xx
