Great Barrier Reef

Yesterday  we had a bit of a scare when we thought I lost my watch at the beach. It turned up hiding under a foam pad in the tent. We were so relieved at not having to pay for a new watch that we spent the money on a day trip snorkeling on the outer great barrier reef. Rationalization is a wonderful thing sometimes!
We didn't take any pictures underwater, as the rental was as much as buying a waterproof camera back home, but it looked just like the tourist brochures. Lots of colourful fish, bright coral, giant clams, and even a couple of white-tipped reef sharks. They were too small to bite my legs off, luckily. Ciel saw a turtle too! I saw one briefly on Fitzroy, but not at the outer reef. Just lots of weird fish, like swimming in a giant tropical aquarium.
