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)

Crunchie Point

This sign at Point Leo on Westernport Bay always amuses me.
Why this name, I don't know.
All I know is that it is a reef area protecting an expanse of water.
It's very popular for beginning surfboard riders and SUP's (stand up paddlers).

I think of eating
I think of chocolate bars
I'm not a surfer

It is an amusing name but I think of popcorn rather than candy.

Yep, definitely something silly about that word!

It is a cool name! I should have tried surfing many years ago!

Andy said...
