12 days of Christmas: day 8

This photo  was taken during our plane ride over the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef while we were staying in Airlie Beach. It was one of those unforgettable experiences and one of the highlights of our vacation. You can clearly see the heart ❣ in the picture and while I’m not sure my photo does the amazing colours justice, it’s not bad!

Heart Reef, in the Great Barrier Reef of the Whitsundays, is a stunning composition of coral that has naturally formed into the shape of a heart. Discovered in 1975 by one of Air Whitsunday’s pilots, it’s now an internationally-recognised attraction which features on many postcards and brochures promoting the Whitsunday region and the Great Barrier Reef.
