My friends, there is some glitch that will not allow me to post pictures. I guess you will just have to join me next year to see first hand. I was not planning this for 2017 but if we have enough interest it will be on and crackalackin.
Our day started after brekkkie (that’s aussie talk for breakfast, mate). It was a 915am pick up and the expert Quicksilver Cruise crew picked us up and delivered us to the Port Douglas Marina where we boarded the double decker boat that took us to the Agincourt Reef which is at the very outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. Here, special reefs known as ribbons run parallel to the Continental Shelf. Adjacent to the Coral Sea trench, these ribbon reefs are recognized as the most pristine Eco-systems in the reef’s environment. Clear water provides the best possible underwater visibility, encourages rich coral growth and supports spectacular marine life. On board with us were Marine Biologists, expert divers and photographers. It was a well organized first-class operation.
The tour included morning and afternoon teas, a tropical smorgasbord lunch on the pontoon, snorkel equipment, coral viewing in a submersible sub, and an underwater observatory. Now most in this group did all that PLUS all the extra stuff, ie, the Helmet Ocean Walk, and viewing the Great Barrier Reef from a helicopter. They are too tough for me. Everybody had a fantastic time. I hope to have pictures for you as soon as possible.
Today was a leisure day and I spent my time enjoying this lovely resort and chillin in my private plunge pool. Half the group went on the Kuranda Gardens tour where they go by rail through the rainforest and return suspended in a gondola. That is the only place one can take a photo holding a Koala Bear.
Tomorrow half of us head home and the others fly to Auckland, New Zealand for a lovely, fun-filled, action packed 3 nights there and Rotorua.
