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 Morning Beach Views

A view of yesterday's summer morning at Balnarring beach on Westernport Bay, looking toward the Somers headland.
I so love low tide at the beach and the interesting rock pools that are left on the sands.

In water-logged sands
Seaweed, shells and odd rock shapes
Scenic wonderland
