I'm going to echo everyone else and say that I loved seeing the sunshine. Those of us living above the snow line in the northern hemisphere are starting to forget what it looks like!

Riet said...

Wat een prachtige foto's. Ik heb een paar vergroot gekeken, vooral die ene met de zeevogels is fantastisch

Paula Scott said...

What a lovely location! I enjoyed my 'trip' there via your images!

RuneE said...

Obviously a place worth Exploring, Even though it is Ever so far away. Perhaps via Goggle Earth?

What impresses me about your blog is the number of foreign languages in the comments section.

Sometimes I get Russian or Japanese comments, but they are always spam, which my computer automatically deletes.

Love your pics, Wil.

Cairns reminds me of San Diego -I am always drawn to a city with a harbor -it has a special atmosphere!

Exciting place - so much variety on the Esplanade. I esp. adore the pelicans photo.

What a wonderful place to be. ~

Sheila said...

Oh, to be able to walk along that esplanade right now, instead of the dismal weather we've had in Europe.

Etje said...

Is hier nu al sinds gisternavond aan het regenen, denk dat we dat vlugger beu zullen zijn dat het mooie witte tapijt

The Weaver of Grass said...

Me again wil. If you know any words for a stream would you be kind enough to pop over to my blog and add them to the list - Dutch words, Indonesian words, Australian words - any you can think of would be much appreciated.

dyanna said...

These pictures are absolutely wonderful! I wish I were there.

Roger Owen Green said...

I could do with some summertime!

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!- Ramblin' with Roger

Ann said...

I like the 4th photo, the birds, are they 2 different types? are they Pelicons and herons?

Next time I go to Australia, I should go to more places.

Etje said...

Regen en nog eens regen geef mij dan maar sneeuw hoor.
