AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Winter Beach

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A winter beach is not off limits for relaxing on the weekend ~ Dromana, Mornington Peninsula
Weekend Snapshot prompt #45

Give me a chair
On the beach
By a winter sea
Under a winter sun
And I will tell you about
Happiness and
A warm soul

When you say "Winter" to us up here in Boston, we picture something a little different.
Excellent Snapshot, Gemma.
