Business as usual in Cairns and out on the Great Barrier Reef.

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

It’s been three weeks now since Tropical Cyclone Yasi had us all quivering in our boots. Although the cleanup is still ongoing around some regions of the Cassowary Coast, here in Cairns you would barely know that Australia’s largest cyclone in living memory had made landfall just a short distance south of our tropical city. We have been enjoying glorious weather and idyllic reef conditions for the past week or two, and customers have been returning from the Great Barrier Reef with terrific photos from our Digital Underwater Cameras.

Maria and I have been too busy to visit the reef this year so far, but our little boy Nicholas does give us a good excuse to hit the pool several times a day. He’s a real water baby… the first photo below is in our home pool, the other two are from Cairns’ lovely lagoon on the Esplanade


Minke Whales and Cassowaries

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Would you believe it if you were diving on the Great Barrier Reef and suddenly you found yourself surrounded by Minke Whales? That’s what happened to some divers off the coast of Cairns yesterday. So the whale watching season in Cairns has started just on time.

And in Kuranda, west of Cairns, three adults cassowaries and a juvenile one have been spotted, giving us all hope for this endangered species.

Meanwhile, we are working hard from our office overlooking the Coral Sea, keeping up with our Cairns Unlimited site, both in Spanish and in English, our Cairns Digital site renting underwater cameras and finalising the last steps before we launch our next enterprise, very early next month.

And our baby Nicholas is getting bigger and bigger, already four months old yesterday.

As you can see, there is no time for boredom in our lives!!!
