I was swimming with Wally!

Scuba diving on the GBR
This is me scuba diving on the GBR.

This photo of me was taken by my friend last February. We went diving on the Great Barrier Reef. The fish in the photo is a humphead wrasse (or a Napoleon fish). Many Aussies and tourists call it ‘Wally’. It’s a very famous fish in Cairns. It lives at Norman Reef, GBR. It behaves like a dog. It follows you around and doesn’t mind being touched. I saw a lot of fish, some turtles and beautiful coral. It was so much fun.
