It's official, I've lost nearly all the pictures.

The memory card to the camera is blank and every card reader gives me a dialog box saying it is unformatted and offers to format it. I made a back up along the way until I lost the connecting cord, so I have some.

Time to move on.

Sorry, technical difficulties

I'm having terrible troubles getting the pictures off my camera. Plus upon arriving home, my laptop died. I bought a new one and between looking for a job to tide me over until I find a career, well, sorry I have not posted.

Diving The Great Barrier Reef

Often considered the pinnacle of all diving spots in the world - it is a great dive spot, if you can call it that. It is approximately the size of Italy.

Turtles are always beautiful, graceful in the water and even when eating...
(Double click on the photos for full size.)

Easy to get close when eating as Isabel shows us.

I found Nemo and his dad.

Delicious food in Cairns

Something so enchanting about a boat out on the ocean...

A nice sunset helps too.

Surfing is a good idea.

From Byron Bay, Australia.

Diving in Byron Bay

Visability was a bit rough but the diving was fun. Great stuff from turtles to 3 types of sharks to rays to lobsters to spiders and more great stuff...

Getting to know the locals!

Lone Pine Santuary has some very loveable marsupials...

(Kangaroo is also quite tasty!)
