An activity that I have always enjoyed doing but never think to mention it when one asks what I enjoy doing…is snorkelling. I have snorkelled in a few different places around Australia (first place ever was Rosebud, Victoria), Port Douglas – Cairns, Great Keppel Island (off Yepoon), Phi Phi Island-Thailand, the Whitsundays (Queensland), N’ukalofa-Tonga, and Fijian Islands. While on Mana Island, we snorkelled at Dream Beach and Ratu Kina. My 12 year old was enrolled in a Diving Course – an intense program of theory and practical with the final outcome – a licensed diver! Already he has seen a reef shark and a turtle and many, many other types of fish.
I wonder what the fish think when they see us coming along wearing the weird looking apparatus attached to our face and bodies with the possibility of also flashing a camera at them to capture the best shot.
It’s so quiet under the water and serene. Sometimes the fish appear to be looking at us and almost posing for the photo.
