Days 412 & 413: Great Barrier Reef

... by Antonia.

Daddy and I had booked a tour boat in Cairns to go to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.  When we got to our boat, we got on and signed some forms.  Then the boat took off.  It started to get bumpy.  Some of us started to get seasick. Just to reassure you, only two people started to really throw up on the ship.  The rest of us, except for the crew and my adult friend Eveline (who never gets seasick) just had tummy aches.  I liked Eveline. When we got to the Great Barrier Reef after three hours of getting bumped around on the boat, we got into our wetsuits and popped into the water.  Daddy went scuba diving while I went snorkelling with some of the other people.  We saw loads of giant clams and turtles and coral and starfish and fish!  After that we went to sleep and in the morning we snorkelled and scuba dived until we had to go back to the shore.  I was sad at the shore because I wasn't able to say goodbye, but I still had a nice time.
