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)

Though I'm not one for fishing, I do love boats and that's a little beauty, named after a sea bird no less! I would very much enjoy sitting on her deck composing haiku and getting lost in daydreams...:)

Lovely photo and poem, Gemma...:)

Love the words "Fish N Trips." Sounds very clever to my ears. :)

Cute sign and wonderful poem, Gemma. I can't help wondering about the part of the sign that says "...will change your expectations to what a charter boat can be". What if my expectations are GOOD??? Tee hee!

I'm kind of worried about the expectations myself.
