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)

Colourful Block of Necessity

The block of necessity at Rye beach has a colourful blue profile.
Who said that these amenities need to look ordinary?

Colourful mural awaits

I do agree with you, Gemma, we have enough "ordinary"! This is terrific and colorful!

Molly said...

That is such a clever pic. It looks like you're there sitting on the beach looking across the ocean and then there is all that greenery around it - I love it.

Why not dress it up a little. Good idea.

Also, I've never heard the term 'block of necessity' before, but that's a great name for it.

For years, I've called the toilet "the necessary room." LOL

Thanks for sharing, and thanks for supporting the new way of linking.

Happy Blue Monday, Gemma.

Like the name "block of necessity", very funny. Why not add some color to a very drab block of cement.

That's a beautiful mural. My Blue Monday are here and here.
