Life in Cairns, Oz

Wow, is this country ever beautiful! This is Milla Milla Falls (not the right spelling, but I don't have my map with me at the internet place). It was a part of a waterfall circuit that we drove up in the Atherton Tablelands west of Cairns. This falls comes from the rainforest, and you can swim at the pool underneath -we didn't because it was cool in the rainforest, so we didn't feel the need to get further cooled off.
This is Dave and I on board the Santa Maria as we were getting ready to do our 6th (?) snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef. The reef is stunning -I never imagined it in my wildest dreams. Swimming with a huge variety and size of technicolour fish surrounded with corals in almost every imaginable colour. I did buy a throwaway underwater camera, but won't get those photos back until much later. Our dive instructor did have an underwater digital and we are getting a CD of those photos so will be able to post some of those later. I hope that I will be able to remember all that I have seen -but I am anxious to get back into my studio to respond to all that we have seen on this trip.
Being jealous is OK!

Snow again last night - 15cms of the heavy white stuff! Jealous? Big time! Looks like you're having lots of good time... see you soon.
