Paradise Found and it's Paid For

How would you like to get paid to walk the beach, snorkel the barrier reef, take pictures, and keep a daily blog about your activities? Did I mention that a modest pay of $150,000 comes with this fabulous job? No I'm not suffering from cabin fever or indulging in one of my winter fantasies. I assure you this is real ! So real that I am jumping up and down while gazing out my window that is blanketed in a thick layer of snow which promises to continue amidst the dipping temperatures that will be in the single digits by dinner time. This would be my fantasy job. I love, love the beach and everything about the sea. I'm all over it. Want to take a peek for yourself? Check it out right here. Yes, Yes, I'm there !!! Where do I sign up, you say. Your next statement will probably be...help the employment link doesn't work.
Can you say system overload?

Get in the long line of crazy, blog addicted, sun starved, unemployed individuals just itching for the chance to be island caretaker to Hamilton Island's Great Barrier Reef in Australia. This list includes yours truly. Although I haven't applied yet, I have been dreaming about what it would be like.
Why you ask would the Queensland state government offer such a position. It's a way to promote tourism for the beautiful land of Oz. Not too shabby for a temp job. This fab position does end after a one year contract and yes that means you must vacate the island of your dreams. This past year proved to be a tough year of disappointment for many. Maybe this is a sign of what's to come in 2009...who knows. These are crazy times we live in.



  1. I feel very lucky to live near the coast - it really does sooth the soul.
