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)

Family Smiles on Parade


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ In last weekend's Western Port Festival 2011 parade were some strange sights.
This man seemed to be well known in the Hastings community, but he just walked alone with a little one, smiling to the crowds.

That dad looks so proud to be with his son (or daughter?)!

THE SEEKERS OF YELLOW

The seekers of yellow, they say,
Will have a most terrible day
Should they not behold
Cream, amber or gold
To burnish life’s dull shades of grey.
