Highlights of November 2001
On November 11th, we went to the Rolling Hills Club annual Tennis awards banquet and had the following picture taken...
Over Thanksgiving, we celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary by flying to Australia to Lizard Island, a resort on a desert island in the Great Barrier Reef off the northeast coast of Australia.
The resort housed 80 guests in secluded bungalows. The island was a tropical paradise - with very few inhabitants.
The island was supplied by barge from the mainland every two weeks. The staff referred to this as the "beer barge".
Keep in mind while viewing the underwater pictures, both Jon and I used throw-away cameras. It is amazing to see the clarity of the coral (and Jon's face) and the colors picked up underwater.
In addition to the reef and lizards, there was wildlife to examine - including a nest of ospreys and whatever Care could dredge up from the bottom...
On the way back to civilization, we spent the night in a bed and breakfast near the Cairns airport. The beaches were beautiful, but you have to be aware of the stinging jellyfish.
