Taken to the skies

Yesterday I did a scenic flight over Geraldton and the Abrohlos Islands. The day tour included stopping on one of the islands for lunch and snorkeling. Such luxury.
I've only been snorkeling once and that was in Thailand where the waters were 30 degrees and so salty that you couldn't sink. Bit different here - cooler, and some strong currents. Saw a few big fish and some amazing iridescent blue coral.

I flew in a Gippsland Aeronautics Airvan which was fitted with 6 passenger seats. We had to wear life vests as we were flying over water.

someone isn't obeying water restrictions:
The 'new' marina and the old marina and port
