Hey from Sidney !!!

Can't talk too long. Internet is $.55 a minute here! Australia has been great. Got to dive the Great barrier reef, drink lots of good beer, see interesting things. Gonna climb the Sydney Harbor bridge tonight. Should be fun. 22 hours plane ride Sunday for home.

Sweet! Get some underwater pics from diving the reef. Rent an underwater camera if you have to. It will be well worth it.

Have fun!!!

F'n Jet lag is a bitch. I've got a couple of U/W pics-Vis was about 10 feet. Not the best I've seen. Kick Ass trip !! I will put some pics up later when I get them sorted.

Yep. It had rained the day prior so it was pretty stirred up. Vis improved at about 8 ft. We were drift diving at about 50 ft.

PADI O/W. But really...The deeper you go the less color you see. 50 ft. was fine for the reef. I am gonna get my deep water cert. next summer. Plus my aquarium cert.

That's one place I hope to visit some day.

My longest flight so far is 17 hours...and that sucked pretty much.
