After a great day at the Great Barrier Reef we settled back on our high-speed boat and began our cruise back to Airlie Beach and our ship the Celebrity Solstice. It had been a grand day at the reef. The reef had lived up to our expectations. We had seen some wonderful locations on our trip thus far in Australia but this was the adventure we had waited for and it was well worth the wait!
Now the mainland was just over two hours away. The sun was beaming down on us and the wind was blowing hard as the pontoon boat sped atop the waters of the Coral Sea. The seas were a bit rough, yet that didn’t seem to bother us at all. The scenery, as we approached land, with the sun starting to set, painted the perfect picture to end what was a perfect day.
Have a great weekend all.
