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)

Kite flying is one of the joys of childhood. Love this one!

Su-sieee! Mac said...

That would be fun to fly. When I was a kid flying kites, my Uncle would somehow put a piece of paper on the kite string so it would work it's way up to the kite. He said he was sending a message to the sky.He never said what the message was.
