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)

Seagulls Gathering on Rosebud Beach

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Seagulls just being in winter's morning light on Rosebud beach, Mornington Peninsula
Watery Wednesday #43

Still and rippled pools
Slim shadows and reflections
Essence of being

I like seagulls much more now that I rarely see them. It's nice to see them and the ocean in pictures.


They live a happy life on that nice beach! Love the name on the beach!
