Our day at the Zoo happened to be the Australia Zoo. This zoo was an amazing educational experience and I am not a fan of zoos. However, here they really do their best to take care of the animals and educate the patrons that enter it.
Snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef from Orpheus Island. It was not so much an island paradise as it was quiet, pristine, and the photography options were unbelievable. I chose this photo because it is representative of where we were.
Today we spent the day at the Reef HQ Aquarium. It was a full day of learning about marine life, coral, the Great Barrier Reef, and the human impact on the ecosystem. They have a tank in which you walk through this tube and the fish literally swim above you. This is my photo for today.
Today we visited a Banana Plantation. Besides there being lots and lots and I mean lots of Banana trees I was fascinated by the volcanic dirt. When this dirt gets on your shoes or clothes, it is very difficult to get it off. The red color was amazing!
On this day we went to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures for lessons on animals, especially Salties. I was so amazed at these that I could not sit down. Crocs are unbelievable and there are so many myths out there about them. I chose this photo because of the rich detail and it was looking at me. I think.
