For those who follow me, you’ll have seen the shark photograph, and read the tale of me swimming over it…wow.
Whilst on a 3 night cruise on the Whitsunday’s as recommended by STA, thanks Louise, I encountered ‘my’ white tip shark, the stunning coral of the reef, turtles just swimming by, so many fish you can’t count and saw numerous sea eagles. The local guide didn’t believe I’d seen a reef cod until I showed him pictures. We even spotted a whale on the way back to port.
It was a trip full of emotion:
Fear as I realised it was getting to dusk and we were swimming in waters inhabited by sharks
Hysteria, I have never laughed so much as when the see-through kayak sank with us in it
Joy at the sight of eagles nesting, on cliffs and on a post passed by every boat going out in the bay
Pain as I dipped toes in the hottest hot tub, in the world, ever
Trepidation as we watched a lemon shark and rays swim past us at the beach
Contentment as I sank underwater and listened to distant whale song transmitted through the crystal clear waters
