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)

Cruising Port Phillip Bay


Enjoying the summer waters of Port Phillip Bay near Safety Beach


Just sailing along
Feeling the joys of summer
Like silent music
