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)

Out on the water
Faces wreathed with sailing smiles
Enjoying sunshine

I see that the autumn chill is settling now on the bay, as the boaters are bundled up a bit. Yet, it remains a pleasant day on the water, neither too hot nor too cool. Their smiles attest to the fun of aimlessly cruising the water. Relaxing at its finest!

These two look awfully happy to be having their pictures taken. I know they have quite a job patrolling the waters. I think it would be nice out on the water all day, but also think it would be very tiring.
