On Facebook, this weekend, I promised a few photos of our snorkeling weekend adventure. Here they are, I do hope you enjoy them!

This past weekend, we were able to go out on our new boat for the first time in months. It is the rainy season here in Australia and it has been wet, hot & humid. Being from Michigan, it is always a challenging time for me with the heat. I would like to say by now I am getting to use to it but I am not. We also had a few cyclones that came close to our house this season too. That was a new learning experience for me too.

While kayaking back to the boat, this beautiful turtle came up to visit us. It was amazing! He/She was absolutely beautiful and I was able to take this quick photo of it. Sorry about my foot in the way & the water on the lens! This is truly an action shot. Haha!

He/She even swam underneath us and I quickly stuck my underwater camera under the water and got this beautiful picture. I love the barnacles that are growing on its shell. It must be pretty old.

This beautiful wrasse came and visited us while we went snorkeling. It was so beautiful and huge! He would swim along side us while snorkeling.

I have never swam with so many fish before. There were so many of them and they would come right up to your face mask and hit it with their nose. It was absolutely amazing.

The beautiful Great Barrier Reef. The coral just went for miles and miles with beautiful and colorful fish. It was a beautiful weekend.

Here’s a picture of the swollen river down the road from our house. We live in the rain forest and this shot just says it all of the tropical wet summer.

I hope that you have enjoyed my photos. I have been living here in Australia now for almost 4 years. It is a very beautiful country filled with so much beauty. If you are ever in the area & come to visit, please let me know!

Big Hugs and we will see you tomorrow with Friday’s inspirations!

With love and paper hugs, Joanna xoxo

    Whoa, big turtle. Your photos are awesome! We woke up to some more snow here in Northern Michigan this morning. But, spring is approaching, and I know you are looking forward to fall. Lovely prize package this time. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    The barrier reef is breathtaking. I have been wanting to visit it since I was a school kid. Perhaps in a few years’ time, I would have saved enough to afford myself a trip.

    The pictures are so beautiful. Love it!!!
