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)

Nando's Style

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ An unusual street feature wall separating the footpath from the road - outside a cafe in Mornington.
This wall protects diners outside, but still gives them a sense of openness beacuse this area is raised above the footpath level!
SOOC Sunday #94

A wall with a view
