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)

Summer Blues are Slow This Year!

The above photo was taken at Dromana beach at this time last year!
This year we are still wearing jackets with just the occasional glimpse of warmth later in the day.

The little beach tent
Longing to see them emerge
A sign of summer

A lovely image and I always enjoy your haiku's. We are entering into our colder months now and I keep hearing we are going to have a very cold winter. Photos like yours will help to keep me warm :)

What a pretty spot to pitch your tent, and the water is such a lovely shade of blue-green. genie

I hope your summer weather arrives soon! The water looks warm enough for swimming. Happy Blue Monday!

When the beach tents bloom, you know that summer is near.
