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)

Beyond the stairs...

My viewing deck is a great place to view skies and Port Phillip Bay.
This view is looking south west.

Invitation to heaven

Beautiful! For the first time I looked in maps where you live. I did know it is Australia, but not that is such a fantastic area. This deck is YOUR deck, from your house? Oh awesome place.

When I visited Australia I came with our small sailboat to Bundaberg, stayed there seven month and sailed north around the cape in the Indian Ocean. Australia is so beautiful, so different, such a lovely place.

By the way I work as a teacher for PE in a school for kids with special needs (hearing impaired or deaf children).

Oh you are a lucky girl! Sigh. I so loved living within sight of the sea. Now I have to content myself with the sky.
