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 love the birds in the boats, Gemma, but I can sure understand why some people cover their boats. LOL

Love the birds riding on the boat! Excellent.

I was laughing so hard at the "haven't lost my mind" cartoon that I just noticed on your sidebar that I forgot where I was and had to go back to look at the post again!
