Today was packed … and I am totally pooped!
There was nothing on in the conference this morning as my tour only started at 1.25pm. So I decided to take myself out to Florida Southern University. This is the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture on one site. I was speechless. It was a beautiful day, I couldn’t have asked for more sunshine. I will let some pictures tell you for themselves.

After that I cam back to the hotel and picked up Chris and Geoff and they took me to the conference. We registered and got on a bus to tour a hospital. I went to Dr.P.Phillips, which was designed by HKS, a firm that we are working on the Children’s with and the guy there new the people that I knew, so we got on great and I joined his tour group for the tour. So much learnt and i just got it all down in photo’s and drawings as tomorrow I am sure to be filled with more info.
Main Lobby from Level 2 (1 for us in Aust.)
Typical ICU Rooms - sliding doors, private, no bays in ICU at all.
Typical patient room head wall - not sure about the curtain!
In the evening we went to the shopping outlets which again was a bit overkill and I was just so overwhelmed I forgot to buy anything! Yes anything!
Ah well, I am so tired, almost falling asleep here. Off to bed and can you believe it, we are going through another daylight saving tonight. So I hope my technology can handle the alarm at the correct time. Here’s to hoping.
/Elsa Phillips: Hi Diane, we are sitting outside on the deck with your folks and Neil, the evening is just divine, and we’ve had a look at all your pics. It all sounds so exciting. We’ve heard about you being upgraded - how good is that! On my first trip overseas, at 19, my sister and I were travelling Singapore Airlines, and we were upgraded to first class - that was the first time we discovered croissants! we got off the plane in Singapore covered in pastry! All good fun. Anyway; lovely Di, continue to travel well and safely. xxoo Elsa and Mal too
Diane: Thanks so much Elsa, yeah the upgrade was SO appreciated. I don’t know how I am going to do on the way back - we will see.
This place is pretty interesting and I am just getting on top of the jet lag. Today I tried to take everything in, not sure how I am going to record all this.
Thanks again for the post, keep watching for more updates. :)
Love Di xo
say hi to Mal as well !
