Cairns (World Tour, Stop 2)

When I landed in Cairns there was a cyclone warning and it was grey skies and rainy. Not exactly ideal weather for a beach vacation. Luckily, the weather cleared up in about a day and it's been sunny skies for the rest of my stay.Went on a dive trip to the reef and saw sharks, fishes, and unbelivable coral; electric blue, bright pink, deep purple, in all colors, shapes, and sizes. The last dive site had an 80 lb rock cod that the divemasters feed, so it was quite domesticated and you could pet and cuddle with it. The visibility wasn't great because of the ealier storms but at least it wasn't raining.

Next stop: Byron Bay for yoga classes, beach lounging, and digeridoo lessons.
