On Drastic Weather Changes

New Zealand was warm, but it was San Francisco warm. Mid 60's, maybe 70. As you already know we finished New Zealand up in Christchurch where the weather was windy, rainy, and colder than everywhere else we had visited.

But, now we are in Australia, and instead of wasting our time transitioning into the heat, we jumped right in it. In CAIRNS! The weather is "sweat-after-you-shower" warm, the water is "make-your-body-melt" warm, and the sand is "I'm-walking-on-pillows" soft. Tomorrow is an all day scuba/snorkeling extravaganza in the Great Barrier Reef, and we even rented an underwater camera to take pictures. In the meantime, we'll leave you with this...


  1. Good. That was one of the reasons we did this trip. But don't you worry, hot tubbing in the snow and snow mobiling across Yellowstone is soon to be a reality!
