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)

Surf Rake

This surf rake grades/cleans the sands.
It is usually active early in the mornings on Dromana beach - especially in the summer months.
It is dark green + an odd shade of pale greenish yellow.
But at least the light on the left side is distinctly yellow!

If only we could
Rake the flotsam and jetsam
Of our daily lives

My new meme is Scenic Weekends - Links open Saturday morning in Australia (Friday in U.S.)

We would need that for the snow here !

It's my first time to see this kind of machine/vehicle on the beach.

Luna Miranda said...

this machine would be perfect for some of our beaches here. many beach goers just leave their garbage lying around.

It's good that it does not get stuck in the sand.

Hopping from Mellow Yellow.

I have never seen that type of vehicle either, but we have beaches here so perhaps we have them??
