Great Barrier Reef, scuba diving and living on a boat = awesomeness.

Dave and I are getting rid of our sea legs after 3 nights on a live aboard dive boat which was amaaaaaazing! We went with Spirit of Freedom and they did a phenomenal job organizing all of our 10 dives over the few days. We saw so many cool things – more than I could even describe here. Some of the highlights were diving with the potato cod and being there for a cod feeding(photo of dave and a potato cod below), swimming with the minke whales(GORGEOUS!) and seeing all the insanely amazing coral. This was the best diving we’d ever seen and we had such a great trip and met a bunch of fun new friends.

We also spent a few days before at a resort called the Thala Lodge which was beautiful and felt so isolated. Very cool and relaxing. The photo below of both of us was taken this morning at Lizard Island – beautiful little island with a gorgeous resort. Then we took a small prop plane back to cairns…pretty cool scenery from above! We have this one more night in Cairns while we get rid of the nitrogen in our blood and then we’re off to the Whitsunday Islands!!!!!!!! Here are a few photos from the last three days.

Mom and dad thanks for keeping up with our mail!! 🙂 Love you all!
