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)

Testing the Waters

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A little one joyfully tests the waters at Dromana beach, Mornington Peninsula
Watery Wednesday #126

A cool summer's day
Always sands and waters call
Come and play with me

AWE! What kid could resist the waves and sand? :)

I would certainly like t have my feet in that water right about now as the flakes are falling from the sky. This little boy reminds me of my grandsons. Oh, how the little ones love to play at the waters edge The colors are so inviting and the picture as a whole just puts a big smile on the viewer’s face.

I'd love to be testing the waters this morning. Instead, I'm trying to keep my toes warm as it is only 10 degrees Fahrenheit!


A hunter of all kinds of water
Had neither a son nor a daughter;
But ocean and sea
Provided such glee—
He fancied adopting an otter!
