The next morning we were allowed to sleep in before getting up to go on an additional tour on a Glass-bottom boat over the Ningaloo Reef at Coral Bay. it was a good tour and you could see all the coral and marine life swimming below the boat. Once we was further out into the reef, the Skipper stopped the boat and we all put on our snorkeling gear and jumped into the cool water, warmer than the wind blowing through the boat! The fish you could see were amazing so many different colours and shapes and sizes. Something different to look at in ever direction. After half an hour we jumped back into the boat and carried on over to a part called the Snapper trap, because the snaper fish hang about in this area. As soon as we were over them they were being nosy and trying to see who was on the boat. As soon as the first person jumped in they were chasing after them, trying to suck on any skin visible. I didn't quite like the idea of that after being in Singapore and so skipped this bit and concentrated on trying to stay warm. The others were only in the water for about 10 minutes here and once back on board we all headed back to the beach and to the hostel for a shower to get rid of some of the salty water and replace it with a warmer version. Still cold we headed to the local bakery for hot chocolate and hot sausage rolls before our drive on to Exmouth. Once here we checked in we headed to the local market place to grab our pizza and fish and chips for dinner. Saved cooking and washing up, which meant we was able to drink more of our wine and gossip again. Done so much gossiping recently and yet none of it is malicious, it just makes it really funny, So it was a little while before we got to bed!
