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)

Portsea Bus

Portsea bus waiting at Dromana for passengers.
I love the Portsea sign on the bus because it reminds me of the furthest, the last area on the peninsula where homes are gathered.

When I drove buses people used to ask me... How far does the bus go. I told them it goes to Fish Hook. It's at the end of the line.

Kind of like the "ends of the earth", er, ends of the peninsula rather! Love the flowering bush in the photo.

This looks like the bus to catch to find a ship heading for the high seas and exotic ports of all.

Sounds lovely!

Portsea must be a lovely place, and it only takes a bus ride.:p

I always used to romanticize the end of the line point on the busses - because I very rarely travelled that far.
