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)

Winter Waters at Schnapper Point

A view of Port Phillip Bay from the boat ramps at Schnapper Point

Watery Wednesday #153

Like rippling soft silk
As if reaching for Springtime
Waters on the move

SURPRISE...boy have I been having computer issues, it's so slow, I've hardly done any comments on SSS, it takes forever to get them to download and it wastes so much valuable time, especially in the summer when you can't afford to waste a moment.

Sure can feel Autumn in the air. My walnut trees are turning to gold, as our drought continues to take it's tole, I've pretty much given up on my flower gardens, they've all gone to seed and I just don't have the birds around that I used to, I think winter will be early this year, I'm seeing the signs...hope I'm wrong!

Hope your shoulder is faring better after the surgery, it takes us old folks so long to heal. My finger has what is called a 'dropped' finger, where the end joint ligament is injured and if I don't wear a splint 24-7 it will not straighten out...yeah right, it's on my right hand, you know, the one I do everything with...GEESH, how am I going to wear a splint and cut'll just have to make do, cause it is what it is!

Well, just thought I'd drop by since I missed ya and say hi, cause I just needed a virtual 'bout you sista!!!

They don't LOOK like wintry waters! (I guess I'm thinking of many places in the northern U.S., where ice would be a prominent feature in the water.)


A mist, a drop, a river, the sea—
All of this water, a gift for me!

Some snow, a berg, or maybe some ice—
Anything frozen, that would be nice!

So many interesting things to see in this shot. I find it hard to believe it is a winter could be summer for me. Notice you were able to capture a few people, too. genie
