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)

Call of the Sea

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Frankston beach and pier, Mornington Peninsula
Watery Wednesday #129

Where the waves tumble
Where the sea calls the spirit
Time to breathe gently

The gulls seem curiously unafraid of the guy!


Puddles of water and drops of dew—
What does it take to satisfy you?
A rushing river, a roiling sea—
That’s what it takes to satisfy me!

You know what I find interesting about this photo? The way the water curves along the sand. Makes me wonder where it dips and where it's flat. :-) I just love nature!
