En-route back home from the U.S. by air we approached the top-end of the Queensland coastline. I stared down through the clouds in fascination.

“What on earth is that?” I questioned the passenger beside me.
The panorama presented in the water far below resembled millions of coloured jewels sprinkled in various sized clusters.
“Why that’s the coral, we’re over the Reef.” I was stared at as if, ‘and where have you been??’

I did feel slightly embarrassed; after all, an Ozzie should recognise their own Country shouldn’t they? But, I didn’t know I was home, plus, I’d never viewed it by air.
The varied coloured coral looked awesome and intriguing. A wonderland to millions of marine creatures….

Facts: It covers 2,300 sq kilometres and has 1500 species of marine fish. 3,600 species of hard coral, 600 species of starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumber. 500 species of seaweed with whales, dolphins and dugongs. 6 species of turtles. And, 125 species of sharks.

Psalms 19:1 “The Heavens declare the Glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.”   I am breathless!!

  5. Dear Mary, the aerial photo of the Great Barrier Reef has been copied directly from my original (as displayed in various stock photo libraries). You should really ask first before making use of other people's intellectual property. Sincerely, Philip Game, Melbourne, Australia
