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)

As you revel in Autumn skies, my revelry is in the Spring...too strange, that we are on separate sides of the world...SOOOO NOT FAIR!!!

Breathe in a little of that healing salt air for me my friend.

Hugs again...s

Even though you're in the early days of autumn, your shot of this scenic locale looks springlike! Such warmth and soft colors and the water is so clear and inviting. Enjoy the day!

We just got back from a beach vacation in California, where Spring is just beginning. I will take the beach any time of year. This one is very pretty.
