Here's another memory recollected in tranquility...

Australia, Green Island, Great Barrier Reef.
My family, Mum, Dad, and sister, Alice. Also, lots of other tourists enjoying the hot weather!
Boiling hot, slightly breezy but really hot! Good weather for a sun tan..
Bright pink, green and brown stripy bikini!!
Wearing snorkels and flippers, holding an underwater camera.
Swimming, lieing flat across the water. Bits of coral, snad, water, other snorkels, fish, and a reef shark and the jetty with a big boat at the end!
Underwater bubbling sound of someone talking - my sister.
Nothing said.
I saw the reef shark so I was quite scared because I'm terrified of sharks, but I was also amazed and excited at being able to tell everyone I'd seen a shark !
