    ... informative and kept making references to us Scottish girls. We stopped at two different locations on the reef spending a total of around 5 hours in the ocean. We checked in around 7.30am and set sail by 8.20am. The boat journey from Cairns to the Reef lasted 1hour 30 mins and we were lucky that it was a calm day. On route the crew introduced themselves, gave us safety instructions and safety numbers to help check we were onboard ...

    ... like Mardi Gras and this was all before the sun rose! I'm sure he will fill in the details once he stops celebrating! He's still in the athletes section, probably eating. It has rained since the sun set...I don't do rain. So I believe there's a brew with my name and #1 sons name on it! Looks like his part will be added tomorrow.

Most interesting. On our way back to more fun, we got to meet and enjoy a wombat, which we had not yet seen in our travels. It was enjoying a nighttime feed on the grass outside. Most interesting fact of the night - wombats have square poo. Who ...

    ... in Cairns on a Sunday at about 5:30 without a reservation before we fully appreciated this rule. Luckily, a woman was still closing up at a motel we stopped at. We booked a room she had and are quite happy with it. Like most lodgings here, they also book snorkeling/diving tours of the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns is the capital of the reef, so to speak. It thrives because of the tourism business generated ...

    ... anything about me being there. Anyway, I worked my shift, learning the meals and shadowing Aaron, a Taiwanese guy with quirky logic. Mostly it was very quiet, but apparently it gets busier next week. I'm used to these kinds of threats. It can always get busier. The one thing I've noticed about Coast is that there is no discernible guidelines. Aaron does things one way, but the girl on coffee (I feel a little bad I can't remember her name) says that Aaron ...
