In the interim I wrote a blog post entitled 'Stranded on Heron Island' when we were given an hour's worth of free internet access after the ferry failed to show up on our departure day. However since there is no sign of that entry, the internet was as unreliable as the ferry - blame the bad weather, a spin off of cyclone Donna that caused big damage in Vanuatu, about 1800 km away.
Since the last posted entry a lot has happened and we're exhausted so I'm going to let the photos briefly tell the story...
A long-awaited journey that will take us first to Singapore before spending a few nights with friends in the Blue Mountains behind Sydney Australia. Then to New Zealand for 4 weeks of adventures, back to Australia for another month which will be split between seeing friends and exploring on our own. And finally a week in Thailand on the way home, mainly on Koh Samui with the last two days in Bangkok. Please read on to follow our travels!... full info
Turtle in the shallows off Heron IslandIt was wonderful to be able to see many turtles, sting rays and juvenile black tip sharks from shore. We were also lucky enough to witness some turtle hatchlings on their first journey from nest to sea although almost traumatic to see the gulls snatching some up 😢
