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)

Beach Blues

Close to summer days at Dromana beach

Beach blues are waiting
For summer holiday crowds
A special madness

Linking to:
Blue Monday
Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

Pretty soon we'll need an umbrella for sun (when we go to Florida next month). Right now we need them for rain rain rain!
