Awesome!!!10 sept. 2014
We heard of it, we dreamt of it, we wanted it, we finally saw it today: THE Great Barrier Reef!!!! And its beauty is not a legend: it was breathtaking!
After a relaxing morning in the camping, we went for a scenic flight at 12:00 pm during one hour. First, we flew over the Whitsunday Islands which are absolutely stunning, especially Whitehaven beach rated as the 5th most beautiful beach in the world and the 1st in Australia. We do understand why!
Then, we flew over the Great Barrier Reef and there is no word to describe what we saw. It was amazing and magicl! We saw the famous Heart Reef and we saw manta rays and a pod of dolphins as well (but no whale).
After lunch, we spent the afternoon at Blue Lagoon, swimming and having a sunbath.
A wonderful day in paradise!
