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)

Play


Kite flying and bike riding are a great way to merge play and exercise.
This photo was taken earlier this year on the Rosebud foreshore.

play
nourishes the mind with
happiness



And this is an invitation to play with fantasy and fun - at the Hastings festival earlier this year.
