Snorkeling Australia's Great Barrier Reef in 2004
In more than 15 years of marriage after both of our spouses passed just two months apart in 1996, Nancy and I realized that we had several common interests. Among them was our joy in swimming. Nancy, who has a Masters degree in Physical Education, taught swimming for many years at the YWCA and at a private day school in Wilmington, North Carolina. I had polished my swimming skills at a summer camp in the mountains of New York state, and at a local swimming pool in Brooklyn. Being already retired when we met, I was ready to convince Nancy to take an early retirement from her employment as a recreational advisor to senior citizens. Lenore and I had done quite a bit of international travel before she passed, in addition to traveling with our three children to the national parks of Canada and the United States in our 17 foot travel trailer. While I had already been to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia some time in the late '70's, I wanted Nancy to enjoy what I had already seen once before. After retiring from the bench in 1992, I seriously took to my oldest hobby, photography and videography, and we decided to cruise Polynesia, and fly to Australia to visit, swim and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef in 2004, one of the natural wonders of the world. So after cruising around the Polynesian islands for a week where we swam with Blacktip Reef Sharks (another video), it was off to Australia and the Great Barrier Reef. While one can never be disappointed by that wondrous site, it appeared to me, after snorkeling the better part of a day, that there was something different about the many reefs we encountered. It was not as colorful as I had remembered it, and many of the large fish were gone. Whether this was a fact or a flaw in my memory, I can not be certain, but something had changed. Since that time I have learned about the diminution of reefs throughout the world through our own snorkeling experiences, and from stories of climate change and global warming causing a decrease in ocean temperatures around the world. This has had a profound effect upon the reefs of the world, much of which has already disappeared. While climate change is a major cause of reef destruction, The Crown of Thorns Star Fish outbreak in 2000 had a devastating effect upon the reefs in Queensland where the Great Barrier Reef is located, as did destruction by pollution, oil spills and illegal fishing. However, if you have never snorkeled or dived the Great Barrer Reef, you are in for a great treat.
