Nemo: Found!

Last weekend we went to Cairns, Australia, to visit our favourite ecosystem, the Great Barrier Reef. They call it "Great", because when you go there, you enter the fantastical world, as shown above with Barry's captions. We didn't take pictures, so as to avoid drowning, but we saw the following fish: starfish, clownfish (nemo), parrotfish, wrasses, groupers, sea slugs, a loggerhead turtle, giant clams, angel fish, cutttlefish, and all the other fish that exist! My favourite fish, the parrotfish, and my favourite snorkellers are shown below. Did you know that clams can exceed a metre in length?No pictures of me in a wetsuit need be shown, but here is my reef-induced joy.
