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)

Out of the Rain

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ When it's raining and Shadow still wants to be outside, she heads for an old lounge in the carport to ensure dry comfort.
You can see the dampness on the woods behind her.

You're a very smart cat, Shadow. We wish Lindy would come in out of the rain. She has a lovely dog house but she will not go into it, rain or snow or scorching heat. We don't know why. And we don't have a carport with a nice comfy place for her to keep dry.

You're a really handsome fellow, you know that, Shadow? We'd love to have you visit us -- but wait until the sun comes back! It's pretty gloomy here these days!

Shadow is absolutely gorgeous - I love the look of patience in her eyes ... waiting for the rain to stop I guess.
