Swimming with the Whale Sharks, Coral Bay, Western Australia

After being disappointed on our first trip to find a whale shark, two days later we were treated to an amazing experience.   Serveral hours into the trip the search plane spotted a whale shark hooray! The skipper of the Kai-Aura gunned the engines and we were...

Snorkelling Outer Reef Coral Bay, Western Australia

Snorkelling on an outer reef off the shore from Coral Bay ….totally, totally out of my comfort zone, the crew of Coral Bay Ecotours were just amazing, they new I was extremely nervous, and continually checked I was okay.   I do not think I could have taken this...

The Pinnacles, Numbung National Park, Western Australia

It is not often you have to go from 7,500 ft to 8,900 ft for a great coffee but that is exactly what we did in Estes Park Colorado. Catch the aerial tram to the top of Prospect Mountain and you will you get fabulous views of Estes Park and the Rocky Mountains National...
