Seein' a 'Ray at the Whitsundays (05/05/04)
Last updated 05/29/04
Ok, not much to say about this trip other than the highlight was getting to see
a manta ray while snorkeling... oh yeah, and I really, really don't like going
out on boats -- every time I end up feeling a bit queasy on these little yachts,
and it's hardly worth it to go for 2 hours each way to do a couple hours of snorkelling...
in retrospect we were very lucky with monkey beach in Thailand!
pictures of us in nifty stinger
suits (they prevent bites/stings
from all sorts of jellyfish
present in the water).

boat ride from Airlie beach... I love snorkelling but hate all
the time spent getting to the reef (not to mention the
unpleasantness of seasickness in rough seas!).
beach is a pretty
has a nice marina.
