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)

Cars by Sea

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Yesterday morning, I photographed this liner sailing Port Phillip Bay.
Never have I seen a ship travelling with what appears to be a cargo of cars!
It was an awesome sight from Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula!

It looks like a HUGE ship!

Tee hee. I just noticed Jan had the same thought. :) Well, I live inland so most of the cargo I see transported is in rail cars. :)

Now I am just wondering if that ship is headed to Brunswick Ga. We see those huge ships come into that port all the time. There are thousands of cars on a big lot on Rt 17. I have a photo somewhere in my archives.
