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)

The Long Table

Shadows outside a restaurant at Red Hill called The Long Table.
The ambience of this place is a delightful bonus to the wonderful food!

At a long table
Enjoy sweet local delights
Fresh food and fine wine

That looks cool.

I like the over-size chalk board!

The floor to ceiling blackboard is charming, perhaps like in a school where the day's lesson (or today's menu) instructs us. A charming entryway where we feel compelled to stop in and learn more!

I keep waiting for the photo to load, but it's not, so I'll express my appreciation for the haiku instead!

Trevor Woodford said...

A very relaxed feel to this image....


Paula Scott said...

Oh! Love the haiku! Love the clay pots and the patina on them. Love the succulents (and boy, they are 'tall'!). Love the shadows from the succulents!
A home run!

That setting could be an art installation. And you've photographed it beautifully.
