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)

A La Copenhagen in Dromana

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ This ice cream shop in Dromana on Port Phillip Bay, Mornington Peninsula does a roaring trade in the summer season, but takes a break in winter.

YUMMM...I love ice cream and am very bad regularly...who can resist?!

I feel the same way about walking your Mornington Peninsula shores and feeding cockatoos from the veranda with that fabulous view. But I never say never know about the future, quirkier things have happened...pen pals have met on foreign shores.

We wait and listen...and take lots of pictures...

Have a wonderful week dear friend, don't work too hard!

Ice cream will certainly put summer heat on ice. I'm not a big ice cream eater though. Hope all is well. Have a great day.

Too bad it's closed. ice cream is always a treat, any season. And no doubt, they make the sweetest frozen delight on the peninsula!

Too bad they are closed! They sure know how to make you crave ice cream!

Yah, the Danes (and the countries around them) have always been good at ice cream. And chocolate. Go, Scandinavia! Nice photo.

Okay, I've got to go to Denmark, Gemma, and it's your fault!
I am thinking it has to be good, as is your poem.
I've had Italian and Belgium ice cream, they would be hard to beat.
Happy RT,
