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)

Whimsical Door and Two Windows!

This windmill feature used to stand alongside a mini railway attraction at Tyabb Art and Craft Centre on the Mornington Peninsula.
The mini railway is no more.
But the windmill lives on.

A lonely windmill
Blind windows and nowhere door
Still so beautiful

What sweet little painted windows! I especially like that they took the time to build an overhang above the painted door. If you're standing and waiting for someone to open, at least you won't get caught in the rain :)

The whimsical style is what makes this windmill so charming. I can imagine the train that passed nearby, and am picturing the rest of the village that once existed, Charm and style and reminiscing is what is so cool here...



A place of beauty in the Western Tiers
