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)

Sleepy Yarra River

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ A view of the Yarra River, Melbourne on a grey Autumn day
Watery Wednesday #141

Winding quiet greys
Summer colours are sleeping
Winter spaces nigh

Nice to live there, and like 2sweetnsaxy says to walk there!

Does the Yarra River ever get upset and rage and roar, or is it always placid?


Puddles of water and drops of dew—
What does it take to satisfy you?
A rushing river, a roiling sea—
That’s what it takes to satisfy me!
