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)

A Little Red-Hooded Boat

Just a tiny boat
Jaunty little canopy
Like a living toy

Love the haiku - a perfect match to your image! I don't know how you do that all the time. :)

That water looks inviting but I imagine it's cold.

Many of us are jaded - rich or not, we seem to think that a boat is a huge craft that sits among other big boats in a fine marina. Yet this little guy is no less a watercraft than the big ones = a fun playday is what we experience with this boat. An honest friend to take us away into a smooth bay. The red canopy is a treat, too!
