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)

What a terrific shadow shot, Gemma! Wonderful bridge and I do love your blue skies! And the perfect words as always! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

I love the style of this bridge - the arches that cross mid-span are so stylish/ Th safer fence leave a nice grid of shadow.. Safety and style coexist very well here!

Beautiful shadow shot, love your blue sky too!

Hey Harriet said...

That's a very unusual designed bridge. I like it! And that gorgeous blue sky is quite spectacular too! I hope you are enjoying the weekend so far. It makes such a difference when we're lucky enough to have some nice weather. Spring warmth is taking a little longer to kick in this year!

Hello dearest friend, boy, my Saturdays are getting to be quite a chore these days. I had to groom two dogs for some people that live an hour away, that can only come on Saturday, a testament to a good groomer...ha, then off to my other job!

But this makes for a very long day at the store. We usually close at 3:00 on Saturdays, but people kept coming in, so...I didn't get home till 6:00, didn't even turn on the PC, just popped in a video and immediately fell asleep in my big comfy that what getting old is all about??? But I watched a wonderful video on Tolstoy...sigh!!!

I had my cable TV taken out and I really feel a sense of freedom. It is ridiculously expensive for the MAYBE 3 hours a day I sorta watch it...I'm FREE!!!

How wonderful to be so involved with your students Mrs. Wiseman, I'll have to stroll over there when my work is finished today and I have a moment to relax. I took in about 15 more orders for soaps yesterday, so I'll be busy all day today over a bubbling kettle.

Been raining for two days here in the river valley, we needed the rain, so I won't complain(too loud). You should see the maple tree across the street from my house, it's flaming orange and scarlet, what a view!

Have a wonderful week dear sister, don't work too hard and I'll try to do the same(whatever)!!!

Big Autumn hugs!!!
