We have now arrived at Lizard Island (an Island within the Great Barrier Reef) We flew from Cairns on a small private plane, just us and the pilot! We got amazing views whilst travelling into the reef.
We went out for a sunset wine & cheese cruise last night which was nice, we managed to see all the coral and reef as the boat had a glass bottom.
We then had a nice dinner, but no more wine as we had drunk too much champers on the boat!!!!
We have been bitten alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at least in Ayres Rock the flies did not bite, ugh!!!!
Seen lots of Lizards already about the place.
Today we are going a full days diving on the barrier reef and hope to see the potatoe cod.
Oh forgot to tell you about the "fab" meal (not) we had in Cairns, ha ha. I choose it from Guide Book - called Fishlips and oh my goodness I cannot believe we ate in that place, it was awful! We even seen a cockroach!!!!!!!!! Ugh Ian did not tell me until afterwards that he seen this, luckily enough or I would have been out of there in a shot. Just shows you, never listen to what the guide books say all the time, in future use personal recommendations.....
Cairns itself was quite nice however
Oh well off to get breakfast before we go diving.
Tomorrow we have our own sailing boat, organised a picnic and going to a private island, which should be good. Hmmmm wonder how Ians sailing skills will be, considering he has only done it a few times in the past.
We also have lots of spa treatments booked for Wednesday, mmmm I am looking forward to this - a full days worth......
Hope you are all well.
