Cairns, Sydney, & the Diamond Princess January 11&12

With the Blogger app on the tablet it is difficult to put the pictures with the correct text so you might need to scroll a little.

In Cairns we took a boat out to the Great Brrier Reef, about a 1 and 1/2 hour ride from Cairns.  Once there we were able to snorkle, ride in a glass bottom boat and in a semi-submersible submarine. 

There are thousands of bats hanging in the trees in Cairns near our hotel.  The morning we were waiting for our bus to the airport Susan took these pictures of the bats.

This is the lobby of our hotel and a picture of all of us waiting for the bus to take us to the airport.

Joey is strapped in for his flight back to Sydney. He did have time to play a few games on the tablet

We went to Deck 14 for the sailing away party and see a magnificent view of Sydney Harbour in the evening.

The pictures on the ship were taken in the atrium and in our stateroom.
