We woke up this morning to sunshine and just a light breeze, so all looked good for our Barrier Reef cruise. After enjoying the Hotel's buffet breakfast, we boarded the bus down to the Marina. We all hopped on board the FantaSea. Dave and I started off outside, but the hot sun forced us indoors pretty quickly. It was all good until we got outside the protected waters of the WhitSundays. As soon as we were out to sea, the wind and 2m swell caused a LOT of rocking and rolling... for the next 1 1/2 hours. Dave and I were both OK, but many others suffered really bad sea-sickness. I think the boat used a lot of barfbags today!! The crew handed out ice for us to suck on, and cool towels to try and alleviate the symptoms. We distracted ourselves as best we could...trying to talk with ice cubes in our mouths was one activity that passed the time. Here's Teresa entertaining us all:
We donned very glamorous Stinger suits to go snorkeling in:
Dave reckons he looks like a superhero in this shot, with his undies on the outside:
I'm not exactly sure which Superhero he thinks he is though!
