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)

Fishy Mirror Sign

Sign scripted on a mirror at Portsea Hotel
On the left is an ice sculpture of a dolphin

Delights of the sea
A large basket of taste thrills
Banquet of seafood
