Found Nemo and a sunburn.

Did a whirlwind tour of the Great Barrier Reef. It was beautiful. Of course it was. Truly unbelievable. And I just saw a very small part of it.

I found Nemo and saw so many other fish. Even got in the water when the reef shark that was swimming around the boat. But he disappeared fairly quickly.


I took the “Oceanfree” sailboat out to the reef and to Green Island. The crew on this boat were great. They made the day really enjoyable. From morning snacks, to snorkeling tours that helped us find all the treasures of the reef and so much more. The only thing I wish they had reminded me about was sunscreen on the back of my legs and my butt. Remember when you are snorkeling that your backside is right out there in the open of the hot, hot sun. And boy am I paying for it now. Wow. Let me say that a burnt bum make everything of do harder.

But, whatever, I will survive and hopefully learn my lesson and get an okay base tan out of it.

Stayed in my first Airbnb. The place was great for the price. And my host was a very interesting woman and very helpful with my sunburn.

Now I’m in a place called Porcupine Ridge near Melbourne and I’m visiting my friends Oja and Sarah in their country home. So beautiful. Just waiting for the local kangaroo to stop by. Saw the wombat last night. And the stars in the sky were incredible. I’d never seen so many. Gorgeous.

Off to the coast today. Hopefully will find more wifi to tell you more stories.
