      Lazy day, swam in sea. Heard that a crocodile had been found on Clifton, next beach over, it had surprised a woman walking her dog! They got away ok. What with crocs, sharks and jellies, makes the pool look very attractive. Having said that, tomorrow we are off to the Barrier Reef on ...

      We were fed to within an inch of our lives. Snorkelling was really good on the two outer reefs we swam over. We were all mesmerised by the beauty of the coral and the number of fish we saw.
