Swimming with Turtles

Over Easter I took the kids on a tip out to Lady Elliott Island. This was their first time snorkelling and first visit to the Great Barrier Reef. It turned out to be much better than I remembered from my last trip 14 years ago. We swam with turtles every day. They were waiting for us out at the edge of the coral lagoon. We would simply wave to them and they would swim over for a back scratch. These green sea turtles like a good back scratch because it helps keep their shells clean.

What an awesome video of your holiday. Mercedes and Stirling will never forget this adventure with you Henry. When I spoke with them on your return I could still hear the adrenalin rush in their voices. I must get to this Island and experience these turtles myself.
