... so colourful and the fish were super pretty. Our guide even let us touch a sea anemone! It was really weird because the ends were very sticky and would stick to your fingers. We also got to touch a giant clam and it freaked me out so much when it started to close.
For the rest of the day, we did a bit more snorkelling and then went in a semi submersible submarine and we got to see lots of sea turtles and more fish. It was such an amazing experience! Thankfully, ...

There were bumps but not nearly as bad as before! Once back on land we cleaned up and headed out to the German pub for dinner. We had to turn in early because the flight to Sydney was at 515am and we were getting picked up at 330am. Ugh! We were just talking about how we have been here 6 days and have see so much ...
