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 bay is beautiful with its turquoise and teal waters. The floatation devices are bright colors for better visibility if rescued - but today, all are prepared for the worst but will have the smoothest ride over the waves. I expect the best for all of them!

Wow I could tell you had a good weather there, which is good! It's time to enjoy outside activities after a long winter days. Happy Tuesday!

Oooh, I love this shot! They are sailing off into the horizon to enjoy a sunny day out on the bay.

Happy RT and thanks for stopping by ;-)

Excellent photo...but, me with looking at that picture, I'm thinking to myself...I'd need a bigger boat. A MUCH bigger boat.


My Ruby Tuesday is a joke [PG-13] today. Do come by for a visit, won't you?!!
