Day two in Australia was perhaps the biggest day of our trip, in that we were visiting the biggest living organism in the world: The Great Barrier Reef! That is actually a complete lie, because the reef is made up of thousands of different reefs.
We went with a company that took us to three different reefs. We got to see a lot of different kinds of coral growth that I just can not explain to you. We saw some giant clams and a few people on our boat saw a shark apparently. I do not remember the name of the company but I would recommend them…so if you need a recommendation just let me know and I will find the name of that place.
Luckily for all of you, we bought a GoPro camera. Even better, it’s water proof! Bad news is the battery ran out after our first dive, so while I do have some photos of our first dive, I do not have anything from the second dive or third dive site.
I have some video footage too, but I am working on doing something with that. Just like I am working on all that video footage I have from my parent’s trip to Malaysia. What’s that? You want to see just a little bit of video? Well, okay!
We also got to see pats of the reef that are dying…which is strange because my President promises that climate change is a hoax…hmm…maybe it is possible that he does not know what he is talking about. There was a marine biologist on the boat, and during lunch she gave a nice presentation on the reef and how it was created. She also talked about how it was dying. That is the reason we went. There seems to be a good chance that the reefs will be gone in 5 years. So we, like a lot of people, decided to see it before it disappears. I am glad we did, but it does feel a little sad at the same time.
That’s all for now.
