Fabulous place, isn't it? I didn't get a chance to snorkel there, but my kid brother did try diving, attached to the instructor's air tank, with the instructor hanging onto him the whole time. He said it was worth it!
Happy New Year!

Nothing like the clear turquoise waters for snorkeling.

Hope to see you at the Cyber Masquerade Ball.

Isn't snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef just so much fun? I just love it there. A pity you did not let me know when you were in Adelaide. It would have been so nice to meet up.
