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)

Mercury was quite fleet of foot. Wings on the shoes and wings on the helmet add that sensation of speed - from here to there in no time!

What a neat sigh with such a cool name. We have a store nearby with the same name. Love the bright blue...one of my favorite colors. g
