Or why there are waves breaking in the middle of the ocean
25.06.2008 75 °F
snorkeling was so much fun. i got to see tons of fish and even a reef shark, up close and personal. When you got close to the coral, you could actually see some of it moving. Some people even saw a fish that was as big or bigger than me!
Word of the day:greenie=environmentalist
The weather in Port Douglas has been windy and today was no exception. The hour and half boat ride out to the reef was choppy and even on the reef there was evidence of wave action. It was the most unusual weather for the Great Barrier Reef. But no worries mate, we had wet suits (water temp was about 24 degrees C) and so hopped in for a morning snorkel. The fish and coral were brilliant.
As with the tour yesterday there was a steady supply of tea bik-kies followed by lunch followed by more tea bik-kies. This snorkeling business is hard yakka and you need all that tucker to keep going.
The afternoon snorkel was not as brilliant as clouds had moved in during the day but it was still spectacular seeing the coral and multitude of fish.
High point of the day was when our on-board marine biologist explained that more people die each year from toppling vending machines than from shark bites. So watch out for those Coke machines!!
WOTD: No worries = Easy or no problems
