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)

I was wandering, filling in time waiting for my car to be serviced!)

This makes me think I NEED a slice of pizza! :)

I surely miss eating in an outdoor setting like that, and with our brutal winter weather, I know it's gonna be a while.

Looks lovely. Mornington is such a lovely place. I went to the Jenny Phillips art exhibition at the civic centre recently.

Italian of any region is to be savored. With a light dessert of a chocolate gelato, sitting under an umbrella is wonderful for conversation and fine food - usually the order we prefer!

What a knock-out red photo.This one is great. The minute it started appearing on my computer screen I knew I was going to love it. This little Italian restaurant is so inviting. Great shot.

I got my car serviced today but the place is in the middle of no where
