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)

The Couch Potatoes

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A sign on a stall at the Kite Festival, Rosebud foreshore, Mornington Peninsula.
Just as I was taking this photo, a boy raced past flying his kite! So the "S" is almost obscured.
The stall was still being set up . In a short time, crowds of people obscured the sign altogether!

The corn on the cob would draw me in!

I would definitely go for the roast beef. The neatest part of this shot, other than the name itself, is the little boy in his straw hat. I just adore that hat.

Interesting twist on an old saying. Nice choice for today's posting.

Joy said...

The boy is certainly no couch potato. Kites and food, sounds a perfect festival.

Inger-M said...

I think i'll settle for a cold drink, thank you!

Lesley said...

Great name for the stall!
