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)

Nice " a sweet living legend." I love her smile.

Stafford Ray said...

Had a smiling wander through your posts as I do, but wondered if you were referring to the Austin or the woman as the 'legend'.

That's pretty darn cute! (From the title, I thought for a minute it might be about another RVer in my advanced age range ;>)

Dragonstar said...

Certainly 'a bright sun on parade' - she's having a great time!

Love her hat (and her smile).

At 66, I'd still be traveling, if the city and county of San Francisco hadn't instituted massive budget cuts and ended my 21year forensic nursing job. Retirement made a $100,000 change in my income so my smile isn't as broad as it used to be...but I am so glad I traveled the world BEFORE retirement...even had a very short visit to your country, cruising from Sydny to Auckland!

The way I look and life and enjoy every second I am berating, this could have been me a few years back. This gal is wonderful. I would love to have her picture on my fridge to brighten my day each and every day. She is wonderful, and your capture of her is awesome. Sorry I am late posting, but I am taking 2 Photoshop courses at the same time plus working every day. Today I have the day off so am trying to get caught up week late.
