The temperatures we've encountered on our journey through Australia -- a vast country that encompasses many terrains and climates -- have ranged from the 40s to the 100s.
Here in the lovely resort town of Cairns we've come upon a tropical environment that suits us quite well, thank you. It's lush and green and bright with a multitude of colors and textures -- quite the opposite of the Outback.
As you can see from these photos, it's still summer in Cairns and midday temperatures have ranged in the 90s. And, there can be tropical showers at almost anytime as well as winds off the bay and ocean.
Today was a near-perfect late summer day, however and we spent much time outdoors.
Stay with us as our once-in-a-lifetime travel adventure continues!
We're in beautiful Cairns, a lovely resort town in Queesnland. Australia as we continue our incredible adventure Down Under.
While here we're staying at one of the largest hotels in town, The Pullman International.
This is our home away from home -- for now. But tomorrow we'll be traveling again and headed to Sydney.
We'll keep you posted as you follow along with us!

The Broadway premier production of Lanie Robertson’s Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill, starring five-time Tony Award-winner Audra McDonald under the direction of Lonny Price (110 in the Shade, A Class Act), goes on sale to the general public starting March 6th, 2014. Tickets are available at Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200.
Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill will begin previews March 25, 2014. The production will play a strictly limited 10-week engagement with only 70 performances at the Circle in the Square Theatre (1633 Broadway). Opening night is set for April 13, 2014.
Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill recounts Holiday's life story through the songs that made her famous. 1959, in a small, intimate bar in Philadelphia, Holiday puts on a show that unbeknownst to the audience, will leave them witnesses to one of the last performances of her life. Through her poignant voice and moving songs, one of the greatest jazz singers of all-time shares her loves and her losses.
Among the songs that will be performed: “God Bless the Child,” “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “Strange Fruit” and “Taint Nobody’s Biz-ness.”
Frequent collaborators Lonny Price and Audra McDonald have been developing and working on Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill for more than two years. The intimate setting of the Circle in the Square provides a unique theatrical experience, drawing audiences – especially those seated at the tables onstage – into the performance.
On Broadway, Price directed McDonald in 110 in the Shade for the Roundabout Theatre Company. He also directed her in both Sweeney Todd with the New York Philharmonic in 2000 and Passion as part of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series, the latter of which was telecast on PBS’sLive From Lincoln Center.
Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill will be produced by Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, and Jessica Genick who will be joined by Ronald Frankel, Rebecca Gold, Roger Berlind, Ken Greiner, and Will Trice.
We share the sentiments of Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor Willion Fedullo:
"Donald C. Marino was a very bright, kind and encouraging man – a real class-act. He was generous with his time and mentored many lawyers, myself included, and encouraged them to reach their full potential. He is one of the main reasons why I first got involved with the Philadelphia Bar Association. Don will be greatly missed," Chancellor Fedullo added.
Marino was Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association in 1984. When he was Chancellor, Marino formed the Philadelphia Bar Association's Committee for the Homeless, which became very effective in urging the city to improve the conditions of shelters as well as to help the homeless with their legal problems. Prior to that, he also served as a Chancellor of the Justinian Society. In 1999, Marino received the Cesare Beccaria Award, which is co-sponsored by the Justinian Society and the Criminal Justice Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association.
Throughout his career, Marino held many prominent positions in Philadelphia.
