The Reef

 Once upon a time, there was a guy called Dave who loved being out in the ocean almost more than anything else. When he flew to join a ship called the Africa Mercy that sat upon the ocean in Madagascar, he dreamed of ways that he could explore the country and take advantage of the beautiful surroundings. So, joining with an engineer on board, they created and built their very own boat. This meant that Dave could explore with his friends whenever he wanted to and when the weather was right.

One day Dave took his friends Stacia, Heather and Deb out to the reef just outside the port. Dave's friends had been asking him if he could take them out before Heather left the ship to go home. They were not disappointed by what they saw. In the perfectly temperate ocean water they saw starfish, colourful corals and many different types of small fish as they snorkeled around. They even stopped off at a shipwreck and snorkeled around seeing the way that the coral had established itself on the iron of the ship creating a new home for more tropical fish.

As the group of friends motored home at the end of the trip the girls thanked Dave for the opportunity to explore a unique part of Madagascar that they could see from their ship home but only imagine what beauty was hiding under the ocean waves.
