Cairns is an adventure.
We went snorkelling at the reefs which are highlighted in orange:
The boat trip out to the reef was a HUGE challenge for us. It was a very windy day, so the waves were enormous. My son and I are prone to seasickness. I'd rather not talk about it...suffice to say we were eventually able to raise our heads, and that's when we saw this! It was all worth it!!
Son jumps in.
I jump in.
I keep looking beside me, checking that my son is still there. It's a pretty big ocean.
When we jump into the water this is what we see-deep blue depths with shadows. SCARY!!!
We swim and swim and then see this just below the surface
