Greetings from The Great Barrier Reef…wish you were here!
Photo taken in December 2003 in The Great Barrier Reef, Australia.
I got laid off of my job in November and instead of sulking, took a two-week trip to Australia to explore. The trip was booked through Qantas Airlines and included four days in Sydney, four days in Melbourne and four days in lovely Cairns, home of the world-famous Great Barrier Reef.
My Dad and I spent two days on a dive boat exploring below the crystal clear waters and taking my first dive ever to see the hidden world of amazing colorful fish. After the dive, we took a helicopter ride above the reef in search of sharks. As we fly across this amazing place, I couldn’t help taking a picture of our dive boat below sitting serenely on the aquamarine waters above the reef.
