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)

Living Bubbles

Newborns possibly having their first swim at the Boundary Road Reserve, Dromana.
Soft reflections surrounded them.

Small bubbles of life
Feathered bundles of mischief
Parents closely watch
