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)

Breathing in a view
Chilled air but the moment's warm
Sweet experience

The days in Autumn start off cold. But as the day's sun and crisp air warms, the ruby jacket may come off. The water views are always wonderful to view in any season. A lovely view!

The snuggly gear tells me that cooler weather has come to your country!

A SPLASH OF RED

A splash of red or a dash of blue—
Which is the color that’s just for you?

A hint of blue or a tint of red—
Which of these colors goes to your head?

Of all the colors under the sun,
Red is simply my favorite one!
