Awesome! I finally have some underwater photos to share! I got out to the GBR over a week ago and was fortunate enough to go diving 3 days - 8 dives! As you can imagine from the title, the totally awesome barrier reef was all about the reef and coral and VASTNESS and AWE of it all! I saw quite a few turtles, a handful of sharks, and some HUGE fishes! There were plenty of moral eels (love those creepy guys!) tiny nudibrachs and shrimp, and the schools of fish were overwhelming - in every direction - sometimes completely surrounding us! I have finally found my absolute weightless zen (neutral buoyancy) and have been super enjoying the feeling of complete weightlessness as an observer of this incredible underwater world!
I did 5 dives in Port Douglas (about an hour north of Cairnes) and got to experience a few new things! One was a very very fun swim through cave - basically its two very tall walls of reef that start to converge near the top and a sliver of light shines through to light up the awesomeness of your surroundings and little fishes darting in and out of the crevasses!
I also saw the biggest fish I've seen so far, a double headed parrotfish - HUGE with a HUGE bump on it's head! Crazy! I got all these pictures from my last dive, there are a few pics of me as well as fun things i saw over the last week! They are, as you can tell, professional photos = but i'd rather pay them to take pictures for me so that I enjoy my dive to the max!
