Australia Day 3: Wow, in awe! Great Barrier Reef Full Day Excursion

Hi Love Bugs!

We snorkeled 2 outer reefs yesterday, and couldn’t believe our eyes. The under water world is magnificent. I knew the Great Barrier Reef was going to be amazing, but I did not know how breathtakingly beautiful it was going to be in person. We had great visibility, but had to fight some serious current due to the wind, and a cyclone forming out in the ocean. Good thing for noodles (our floaties), or we would have been out of luck! The ocean was incredibly rough while leaving for, and away from the reefs. The boat was bouncing back and forth and it caused many people to get sea sick; however, the crew said the weather was out of the norm, and is usually a lot more calm. Lucky for me, I was okay due to preparation! All of the pictures below were taken on the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition. Enjoy!

Thank you for sharing your day with me by following along. You have no idea how much it means! The Great Barrier Reef is an amazing example of God’s artwork. I cant wait to go back, and dive this under water world again.

Until next time, Love bugs!
