They had wetsuits and stinger suits that you could wear. Since this is the early part of the season the suits were optional. I decided to wear the stinger suit anyway. The wind was pretty strong and it was a little bit chilly. We jumped in and explored the reef. We would hit three locations. The reef was spectacular. This is something that I have always wanted to do. I used to always have saltwater aquariums and I actually worked at a saltwater fish hatchery raising clown fish, and Banghi Cardinals, and neon gobies. It reef was awesome!
lots of coral
Lots 'o fish
Other sites on the reef were these people. I wanted to point out in particular this guy’s shorts. Wow – that screams 1988!
Wow - check out the wayfareres
I also had a chat with this guy – Professional Beach Volley Ball player and gold medal winner Phil Dalhausser.
In other news – Qantas has grounded its entire fleet of Airbus A380’s! The engine on one of them kind of exploded. I am pretty happy that my return flight is on a 747 – there should be no delays for me.
