Day 61 - A Goanna By Any Other Name

When I arrived in Australia and saw all the beautiful beaches I knew there was one thing I had to do before I left but up to this point the right opportunity had not presented itself.....until today.

Day 60 - A Day in the Daintree

After a good night's sleep I woke to the sounds of countless birds all around.  One thing I have loved about Australia are all the "exotic" (different from the US) birds and their unique sounds and this (as you can imagine) was intensified in the rainforest.  I just laid in my bed and listened to the birds for 10-15 was a great way to start the day!

Day 59 - Welcome to the Jungle

Ok, I know I've said this several times in other posts but my day today did begin very early....and not just my definition of early.  :-)

Day 58 - Found Him

I started my last day at sea with a good breakfast and a cup of coffee on the upper deck looking out over the ocean.  I "missed" the 6:30 dive again (darn :-), but was planning to do the other 2 dives before lunch and then heading back to Cairns mid-afternoon.

Day 57 - Where's Nemo

My day started early (well, early for me), but not as early as it could have.  Breakfast was served at 7:30 so I woke up at 7:27. :-)   There was an early morning dive at 6:30 (wake time 5:45) but anyone who knows me well would know...."Homie don't play dat" (ok, who remembers that show?).....

Day 56 - Out to Sea

After a restless night of sleep I woke early this morning.  I packed up, ate breakfast and was out front waiting for the dive bus by 7:30.  The bus arrived at 7:45, I climbed aboard and we took off for the dive center.

Day 55 - Cairns

Today was another transition day.  After a week of rest and recovery from my marathon trip around New Zealand I traveled to Cairns Australia to dive the Great Barrier Reef and explore the Daintree Rainforest.
