Ningaloo Reef

Today we went on a boat-trip around Coral Bay which included snorkelling with manta rays, a visit to a turtle station, and more snorkelling.  There were 29 of us on the boat plus crew.  The boat/facilities/lunch were not up to the standard that we have become accustomed to, but we persevered. The first snorkelling site was to be a practice snorkel so that the crew/guides could check out everyone’s abilities.  You would be amazed at how many of the young, slim (not yet anorexic) German girlies were more interested in checking their bikinis than snorkelling.  Philip and the male crew had a great time!!  It was quite a windy day which made it very cold when we got back on boat.  Snorkelling with the rays was brilliant – they are such majestic creatures. We then powered over to the turtle station and viewed the turtles from the boat.  There was a chance to do some more snorkelling, but we decided to stay warm and remained on board and attempted to get a more ‘even’ colour.  We did have fun watching a ‘rotund’ young man floating around over the bommies as his large expanse of flesh on his back got more and more red!!
