Album 6: Wine, Leigh, a cemetery and a storm (25 pictures)

Leigh is a little one-motel town close to the Marine Reserve around Goat Island, where you can take a tour in a glass-bottomed boat to see the underwater life which has learned about the advantages of living in a marine reserve. That's what we came to see. But there was a storm which kept the glass-bottomed boat safe on its mooring in the little harbour at Leigh. So we saw other things instead, and took pictures of them.
