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)

Beach Umbrella Art

Umbrellas slowly are appearing - at least occasionally - on Dromana beach.
But they won't appear this week!
Rain all week is forecast!

I will take a yellow flowers one, thank you very much. It has lots more personality than the hum-drum of the other two. Still, the three of these together are a nice sight for eyes on a cold and chilly morning in Virginia. Sorry about the rain forecast....but we always need rain.Maybe next week they will reappear. genie

Such a beautiful place by the water. The colors of the umbrellas compliment each other very well. Great job!

Time for a different sort of umbrella for the rain, so I'm glad you captured these when you did, Gemma.
