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)

It looks like he is coming back in and has slowed down. I like the movement in the water. :-)

Looks like fun! Pretty soon we'll start seeing scenes like yours around here in the SF Bay Area. Nice!

Hi Gemma!

I've always been so scared to ride one of those. One of my friends is coming to town in May and said I could ride behind her to get used to it. Maybe I will like it - I like roller coasters, after all ;)

w00t! It's WEDNESDAY!

From this angle, it looks like he has the water all to himself.

My entry is here:


I am sure that is fun, but I have never tried it! Not sure I ever will, prefure to swim in the water! :)

I like the way you captured the wake as the boater approaches the dock.

Maggie May said...

I wouldn't like to be in that dinghy. I don't swim!
Enjoyed your music when I called over here.

Pagan Sphinx said...

That's way too small of a thing for me to feel safe out in the water!

It looks like it may have been cloudy that day...

Deborah Godin said...

Such a simple moment, but makes an interesting watery image with the wake!
