It's a Mermaids Life....

On our way up to the Sunshine Coast
to visit my relatives for xmas
we stopped over in Byron Bay.

Whilst there i saw a leaflet for swimming with turtles...

oh boy oh boy was i excited!!!!

I talked about it for days on end until my husband
realised that we were not going to make it back
to Sydney without a swim.

The Byron Bay Dive centre who we did the swim with
were great.
Even though of course they told us they couldnt guarantee turtle spotting
as they are wild animals, it was only seconds after
jumping off the boat that we spotted our turtles.

Tim wanted to swim around and explore the reef a bit,
but i would have been happy with just watching the turtles the whole hour!!!

All the pictures with me turned out pretty crappy,
mainly because of my lung i'm not meant to dive down.

In fact my diving career is over...

but we got some pretty cool shots of tim!


  1. This is so cool! What a fun adventure, and so great that you got pictures of it. You're heading to Cambodia?! I'm so jealous. What part are you going to? I may have some recommendations of things to see and places to eat, let me know!

  2. I'm following your blog!
