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)

Easy Rider

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ On a beautiful sunny day yesterday, I decided just to walk the streets of Dromana and enjoy the rush of Spring in the air after endless days of rain!
Near the long arched span across the Mornington Peninsula freeway, I saw a woman in one of these motorised "personal people movers" scoot around the bends of the on ramp and then start heading across the high arch over four lanes of traffic!
SOOC Sunday #99

Motorised heaven
Travelling in the slow lane
Not so very slow

I'm glad she was way above the traffic.

Good thing she had her little flag waving to warn drivers.

Great capture - everytime I see one of these things, I think it's kinda funny how fast these things move. Nice shot.

Very cool shot and the words - Perfect.

Gret shot.

I had to re-read because I originally thought you said she headed towards 4 lanes of traffic! When my ankle was broken I used one of those to scoot around in the grocery store. Gad, it was slow so you can see my alarm when I thought she was heading for traffic. lol

Yikes! She lives danger-filled life -- but she makes a great picture!

You may guess that I've gotten a bit behind on reading my fav blogs again! Price of traveling.
