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)

Lone Canoeist

Watery Wednesday #124

A peaceful moment
Eerie stillness in motion
Like a waiting breath

When there is one tiny boat in the ocean like that you really realize how big the ocean is.

Here the weather is not proper for any type of water activity. Can I come visit you?

What a serene way to spend an afternoon. The water is so beautiful and inviting...nothing like the cold and the show up here. Wish I were there.

Water in a drop of rain,
Water swirling down the drain;
Water clinging to the trees,
Water filling up the seas;
Water frozen, water free,
Water is the stuff for me!
