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)

Water Gems

Sign in Flinders main street on the southern end of the peninsula.
I wondered why South Sea  + Tahitian pearls are mentioned
I would have thought that Tahiti would be included in the South Seas.
Perhaps Tahitian pearls are especially desirable?

The magic of pearls
Suggests dreamy water worlds
Like floating gardens
