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)

heart check...


new sign that has just appeared on the Dromana foreshore...
The area is a popular walking, running and biking trail...
The equipment around the sign is still being installed...
The rough winter weather has not been very co-operative...
NOTE: new word = exersite???


the key
to living and breathing is
the heart



Above is the only equipment installed...partially...so far...
