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)

Never heard about a SWIMMING carnival before. There's always a first time..
I have tried to swim with clothes on, heavy affair.
The colors were red and sparkling.

fun in bright colors!

The idea of swimming in such non-swimwear makes me think of sinking instead. The ruby gear for favored teams adds a sense of excitement (and color :) the the splash of excitement below the surface...

Love the red pom poms, red hat and red ribbons. Red fun!

Strange costumes, yes, but...what fun!


“If scarlet be crimson,” he said,
“Then rubicund surely is red.
And then I suppose,
If I named a rose,
Its color would go to my head!”
