Green Island

Green Island

Took a trip out to the Gt Barrier Reef - a National Park called Green Island. Photo should show the cat used for the 45 min journey out to the Coral Sea island which was a great place to try snorkelling for the first time.

Snorkelling was great - I had been swimming out for ages before I suddenly noticed a few fish, then realised they were all around me! It was such a great feeling to understand how the ocean was teaming with life and yet was still so shallow. Most of the coral around the island appeared to be dead but there were a few really colourful growths that the even more colourful fish would hide inside. Sights like this make the plane journey worthwhile!
