|Coral off the main swimming area at Green Island|
The main swimming area at Green Island does have a large field of sea grass in front of it, but it's actually not a long swim before you start finding some very nice patches of coral and lots of fish. The area next to the jetty also has more coral than I remember it having. I'm not sure if my memory is fault, if it has improved naturally, or if they've done some regeneration work.
Highlights of the day included a number of green sea turtles which appeared in the late afternoon, and having a picasso triggerfish charge at me a few times - I assume to try to scare me away from a nest.
One of the big advantages of living up here is that you can head out to the Great Barrier Reef on a whim. Drifting over coral reefs is a wonderful way to relax. I should do it more often.
