    06 • Green Island

    August 2, 2016 in Australia

    Wir haben uns von Cairns nach Green Island begeben, eine winzige mit Regenwald bewachsene Koralleninsel auf dem Great Barrier Reef, und uns wie gute Touristen in einem Boot mit Glasboden übers Riff fahren lassen ;-) Mia war begeistert von den großen bunten Fischen und die Fische von Mia; die sind nämlich extra (für sie) aus dem Wasser gesprungen.
    Vor lauter Erschöpfung ist sie abends auf Papas Arm unterm Sternenhimmel eingeschlafen...

    Green Island & Pub Lunch

    October 11 in Australia

    This morning Mum and I went to Green Island for the day. It’s a tiny sand island with a resort on it and a few shops and restaurants designed to feel like a little village in the rainforest.

    We walked around for a while and then sat in the shade to wait for our glass bottom boat tour. On the boat we saw a variety of coral and quite a few coloured fish and large trevally. We also saw giant clams and a couple of giant turtles bobbing their tiny heads up and down in the crystal clear sea.

    We ate lunch by the pool and then I collected my snorkel and fins and headed to the little beach near the pier to snorkel, while Mum read her book in the shade. The water was warm and inviting and as soon as I’d managed to get on the flippers I enjoyed swimming and looking out for fish.

    The waters around the island are so clear and shallow for quite a long way out that it makes viewing the fish and coral easy.

    At 4.30pm we took the boat back to Cairns and Gadi picked us up at the boat terminal. We picked up a few supplies at the supermarket and headed back to our caravan park where we learnt that the boys had headed into town to eat lunch a pub and then he’d dropped our son back and gone for a drive to the Northern Beaches.

    We made an easy dinner of barbecued chicken (thanks Woollies!), roast pumpkin and eggplant on the Weber and a big salad.

    Now we’ve all had a chance to get out on the water and enjoy the Great Barrier Reef in all its glory!

    Some underwater pictures

    July 14, 2016 in Australia

    Hi again! It's a rainy day but still warm and that's ok, we need a quiet day after all our adventures! Here are some pictures Ruby and I took on our glass bottom boat ride at Green Island yesterday- I like how you can see the fish and coral, but also our reflections! Very artistic. The coral is all different types- Brain, Tabletop, Plate, and some look like spaghetti, broccoli or a net. Coral is not a plant, it's an animal with a hard rocky skeleton.

    Dad also took some great snorkeling pictures, here are 2 of them. There's a parrotfish!
