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)

Strange Boat Emblem

An interesting emblem on the side of a yacht at Blairgowrie
The boat's name was Wilderness Wear.

Ruby Tuesday meme

Like a frilled necked lizard
Like living pre-history
Like a legend sign

Strange, yes...but it made me smile. :)

It certainly seems a strange ascot for a boat - the land dwelling lizard on a waterborne conveyance. But fitting enough for the earth dwelling persons, a reminder of what they are giving up for a day in the harbor or beyond. a neat find!

I"ve seen boat names that made me scratch my head, but never before have a seen a symbol. I feel as if I should be able to say what kind of dinosauer that is, because our sons and grandsons each went through a stage when they were fascinated by them. (But even for the grandsons that has been way too long ago!)

Somebody had great fun creating that emblem!


A man who was out of his head
Was claiming he always saw red.
He saw it all day,
At work and at play,
And saw it at night while in bed.

Oi, a bit strange indeed, but it's not scary, this lizard emblem. Then again, I kinda like lizards (at arms length...) :-)

Since linky tool is not up, here is my Ruby Tuesday.
