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)

I love coming here and reading all your summer posts while I'm in the middle of winter!

Your haiku are so simple yet say so much!

And the photography! Wow!

What a beautiful day at the beach, I can almost feel the warm sand sifting through my toes, oh to be near a beach!

Me and Scratchy had a pleasant surprise today, the sun played around with us for almost two hours, believe me, we were counting the minutes! Everyone is talking about the dismal gray weather and longing for Spring's blue skies...soon!!!

Have a wonderful week dear friend, my thoughts are with you!

Beautiful summer pictures. Looks a bit like our Brighton Pier

Stine in Ontario said...

This looks so tempting. You are making me want to be there, Gemma!

Carletta said...

It's lovely!
I fear the water might still be a little cool but the inviting sunshine would be enough for me to venture to the beach in anticipation of those much warmer days to come.

Delightful response to OSI and wonderful multi-tasking. I've been having trouble visiting lately because Mozilla keeps crashing. I have a faulty WLAN card it seems but I'm doing what I can this morning.
Hugs and blessings,
