The Great Barrier Reef
I've gone and done something I never really thought I would do. I took some lessons and became a certified diver. After spending two days in a pool and a classroom, 3 days living aboard a boat, and numerous underwater excursions into several locations along the Great Barrier Reef, I have been rewarded with a little card that states that I am a certified Adventure Diver. On June 20th I received my Open Water certification and the next day managed to take a small step up to the Adventure level. You might be asking yourself what this means... Basically, it means that I can jump into water with a fellow diver (and proper equipment, naturally) and swim around day or night as deep as 30 meters. I'm still a little surprised at this information. I'm also still a little shocked by exactly how beautiful the Great Barrier Reef actually is.
Not much more time to type as I have to get some sleep before I head out early tomorrow. I'm doing a tour of the rainforest and spending a night in Cape Tribulation. I’ll leave you with a few more photos of the ocean from the perspective I'm more accustomed to seeing it from.
