Today we are going to talk about my adventures at Cairns, Australia! I know you probably just want to see my Great Barrier Reef pictures, but stay tuned! There is so much more to see from Cairns! Just my little blue friend from the reef!
The first day the Bear and I arrived in Cairns we spent poolside enjoying the ocean (not swimmable) view at the Esplanade.
(All land pictures were taken by the Bear, unless he is in it).
As I told you yesterday, I was keeping up on all the blog and Instagram posts while in Australia. The Bear caught me in the photo above.
Once we were in Kuranda, we hung out with a few tropical birds. The birds will do just about anything for a peanut or sunflower seed. On our way down from Kuranda, we took the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway…
After snorkeling at Green Island, I was beyond excited to go to the reef!
And it didn’t disappoint! Oh the colors! And the fish! Such blue water! And blue fish! I may have even touched a turtle there! Shh! Don’t tell!I couldn’t leave the reef without saying goodbye to my giant blue fish friend!
One thing I learned while in Cairns is that fish and birds can be quite friendly. I never realized how pet-like they can be. Plus, the city and reef were absolutely gorgeous! I am already planning my next trip.
