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)

It's a great time to enjoy the entertainment of fantasy and just being wild for awhile.

What a fun post for the E Day, Gemma! I always enjoy a chance to be a bit wild -- less wild than when I was younger, but I'm just old, not dead!! Thanks for the giggles and have a great week!

Interesting outfits but they might be a bit uncomfortable all wet. It would be great entertainment though.
