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)

Salvation Saturday

Today has been declared Salvation Saturday!
Walk in the Street Challenge

Worlds riddled with mud
Floodplains of catastrophe
Streets crammed with heartbeats

It's an important walk you show; every helping hand are needed!

Excuse my late reply to your comment last week in WITS, but I have not been well! The building is located at the Port of Nakskov here on Lolland. Years back the building has been important, but today it houses one of the many supermarkets in town!!
