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)

Weekend Mailbox #14 ~ Three of a Kind


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ At one address in Dromana, Mornington Peninsula are 3 free standing mailboxes.
This is most unusual because when several units are on a single block of land, mailboxes are usually like inserts in a wall!

P.S. I am aware that U.S. has official mailboxes.
But anything related to mail is great for this meme!
It's OK to think outside "the mailbox"!!!

Hi Gemma How are are you Like your triplet mailboxes Several units are quite common here

Dimple said...

I really like the numbers: 1, 2, 3,...6!

Hey Harriet said...

That is unusual! And they also appear to be unusually large for private mailboxes. They're not far off the size of a public post box! Perhaps many residents in the Mornington Peninsula area receive large postal items? A very cool find Gemma :)

They look almost like little robots. That would be handy they could walk up to the door with mail.

I love the style though. So creative Australians.

(I pray that other participants have a pop up comment window so I will be able to leave a comment to their entry. Oh please! I can't do with Embedded Below Post comment window. It doesn't work with mine template). Sigh.

I like these three ... they do seem to be a little larger than most mailboxes ... I hope that means they get lots of mail!
