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)

I'm not a sailor, but I AM an avid lover of the sea. This photo pleased me immensely, made me feel calm and content. That is a precious gift on the heels of a week in Washington D.C. ! And your verse it ideal.
happy day!

Scenic indeed. I see you took the photo, too. Such an idealic setting and you say that in very few words.

Our favorite kind of spot! But I bet you knew that. Lovely marina. I wonder if we could pop our boat over there for lunch. Probably not ;>)

Lots of Ms in your post:-) The clouds seem to be overwhelming the marina.
