Sydney, Australia Oct. 5 2011

Sorry for the long silence, but traveling the country in a crappy camper going from campsite to campsite is not very conducive to internetting.  We have finished a 5 day liveaboard dive safari on the outer Great Barrier Reef followed by two weeks of traveling from Cairns to Sydney with many stops on the way.  Not least of which was a day diving the wreck of the Yongala, a passsenger and cargo ship which went down in a class 5 cyclone as well as a neat 120 meter cave swim through further south (for temperatures, when you see south, read north.  Brrrrrr.  17 degree waters.)  We spent a couple of days in the rain forrest north of Cairns as well as visiting the Tablelands in the surrounding area.  Could'nt make it to Uluru (Ayers Rock) as it was way too far away and we just didn't have the time for such a detour.  We saw Wallabies, Roos, Koalas as well as an untold number of different birds, all in the wild.  Yes Dad, I did take pictures of things other than fish (Though I did win first, second and third place in the photo competion on the liveaboard).  I am in the process of posting more pictures as we are now back in the real world and actually have a viable internet connection.  We leave tomorrow for Fiji and will be back in Calgary on the evening of the 13th.

PS.  Scooby says he loved his first few days of diving, but wasn't too thrilled to find himself in the decompression chamber after each one (see pictures)
