Brokedown Bus


The last day of the tour was pretty mellow. In the morning, we checked out some goofy sights like Larry the Giant Lobster and took walks over beautiful coastal sand dunes. The afternoon brought us to an aboriginal reserve where a guide took us on a bush walk to discuss aboriginal history and to show us medicinal and edible plant life along the coast. On the home stretch to Adelaide, the bus broke down and left us stranded near a place called Doctor's Creek. Initially everyone seemed a bit excited by this unexpected 'adventure' but as the hours passed, we were less amused and growing more irritated. We made it though, three and a half hours later than expected. Tomorrow morning I catch an early flight out to Cairns which is on the north east coast of Australia along the Great Barrier Reef. It's supposed to be miserably hot out there. Yay. I don't know if I've ever sweat on Christmas.

    OK, the flies were gross, but I'm still extremely jealous of you. I assume that you're going to dive on the GBR. If you do I will turn totally green with envy.

    Dive Safe - Watch out for your buddy. Live to dive another day.
