Well I am back home but have added some pictures. And I wanted to add some underwater pictures of the barrier reef. It was a two hour trip to the reef and we went to two spots and the wind was blowing and it was rough. We were snorkeling. Simone had rented an underwater camera and I don't know how she even held on to the camera, but it had a wrist strap. They say the spot to see the pristine Great Barrier Reef is now New Guinea. We were there in the off season, the time to see the reef is April through October. Anyway we did see some amazing coral. and some beautiful fish. The camera rental came with a disc with her pictures on it and some that had been taken previously by a diver I suspect. The closer you are the brighter. I know the coral in her pictures looked brighter in real life.
