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)

Timothy Remembers

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A lonely, silent station at Tyabb Art and Craft Village, Mornington Peninsula
Friday Flash 55

This was once a place for children to take a ride in fantasy world. Timothy was Thomas the Tank Engine’s friend. Children accepted Timothy and so accepted his regular driver, even the strange, unknown new driver. It had been raining, raining continuously. Slippery tracks and a racing train meant no magic circle from now on.
