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)

To Pier or Not To Pier!

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A strange water view!
The pier at Schnapper Point, Mornington Peninsula is being re-built.
Supposedly, it is to be finished by December 2010.
This is how far it has advanced by 16th December, with only days left to complete.
(The structure on the right is part of the old pier.)
But, in all fairness, there has been so many days of rain, that it would be hard to keep to a schedule.
And I'd much rather safety and quality building were high priorities!

rain can hinder the best of projects, can't it? hopefully they'll have the new pier up and running in no time.

that rainbow pic below is wonderful, beautiful. and i simply love that Dear Santa post. it's sweet. funny how we grow to appreciate something we once didn't like/ want. hope all is well. have a great day.
