Great Barrier Reef

Bristol Rose anchored at Line Reef, Great Barrier Reef
Waking up on the reef is pretty special when conditions are as calm as we have had.  We heave anchor at Line and motor the five miles or so over to Bait Reef for a snorkel.  The Steppings Stones are clearly visible above the water at low tide.  The fish and coral truly are beautiful and the water clear enough to see from the dinghy.  It seems important to many of us to think we have the best of the world here in Australia.  At about 2300 kilometres long the Great Barrier Reef is the largest reef system.  Is it the best?  It is always safe to say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
