While we where out snorkeling in the great barrier of the coast of Cairns in Queensland Australia. This green sea turtle surfaced from the reef.

It was so cool to swim along side him, and he didn't seem to mind me being there.

Such a beautiful creature.

I shot these pics on my YI action cam.

Can't wait to go back to the reef in the near future. 🐢🤙

I absolutely love everything about sea turtles!

See how much?! I even draw them for no reason! https://hive.blog/hive-156509/@ninahaskin/original-sea-turtle-painting-photochain

That must have been a truly remarkable experience to swim up close to one in its natural environment. Awesome photo!🐢

They sure are turtlely awesome!!
It sure was an amazing experience, I swam along with this turtle for about 5 minutes before I realised I was so far away from the boat, so I left him on his adventure and made my way back to the boat.

Cool I'll check out your link 😊

So beautiful aren't they! If you like Tutles, check out this video by @indayclara https://peakd.com/hive-178638/@indayclara/vgnucvph

Lucky you- being able to swim and in the warmth and all.

If I knew that I wouldn't get such FOMO about Melbourne, I would be moving back up to FNQ asap because I'm so sick of the cold down here!

This 'Spring' is even colder than winter with the winds coming straight of the Antarctic....I miss FNQ soooo much....😥

Wow that video is cool.
The water was amazing up there!

Melbourne sure isn't known for its weather. The winds don't sound good at all. But summer isn't to far off now.

Yeah it sure is isn't it!

keep an eye on her because she posts brilliant freediving videos all the time.

Yeah Melbourne's weather- not usually this bad, or cold at this time of year.

I wish I could move back up to FNQ...one day..
