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)

Moorabbin is an inner suburb of Melbourne.

Certainly wish our country hadn't closed so many railroads in the past and wish we could catch up a bit faster on replacing them with new models of transportation, at least in my city of St. Paul.

great protection of those in the area, but not attractive.

I like the patterns and lines in these photos. How nice we can see the train in the first one.

We dont have any trains in Canberra, at least not suburban ones and we dont have front fences either unless you are in an older suburb, so my fences are few and far between
