The rain of Sydney led me up to Northeast Australia to the town of Cairns. This is my gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and other adventurous activities. Leaving the comfort of friendship has been a challenge. The place screams of beautiful backpackers and a good night on the town. So I nestle in for a dip in the pool, sun on my face, and time with My Lord. Sweet, sweet time to soak up all I have been experiencing is something I have needed.
I talked with Maggie, my hostess, about possible adventures and decided on an overnight adventure to the Reef. I'm not looking forward to getting up early tomorrow, but I am excited about seeing this amazing sight. I'll be there for two days, should be wonderful. I hope to have some remarkable memories to add to the list.
Exactly how my time here in Cairns will unfold, I am not sure. I'm still not quite sure how I feel about the place. I was hoping for beautiful beaches, instead the waterfront brings lagoon and marshland. They say the lovely beaches are nearby though, so I will try and find them soon enough. Right now my eyes are on what lies beyond the beaches. The beautiful blue and unknown creatures are calling my name and I am thrilled to come running. I'll keep you posted.

Sunny Skies
I just checked the weather in Cairnes, Austrailia and it looks like you are having sunny skies. PTL. I'm thinking of you often and praying for you continually. We are having dinner with Katie and Joe, and Emma tonight. I am looking forward to seeing the three girls playing together.
Have a wonderful time and take lots of pictures. I hope you got one of a kangaroo.
Love, Mom
