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)

I Saw a Strange Sandcastle!

I love to wander the beach at weekends.
Today I wandered to the south of the Mornington Peninsula to Tootgarook on Port Phillip Bay.
On the beach I found a rather strange little sandcastle with shells and a moat of seaweed!

Little fantasy
A sandcastle of shelled dreams
Waiting by the sea

I loved the shadowy spire it created from one side!

A delightful find. The shadow looks just like Mont Saint Michel -a holy place, and tourist mecca of this region.

I love 'shelled dreams'. Yes, it's quite a little fantasy!

I adore this!
What a fun find!
I once, during a beach wander, found a tiny Stonehenge.
I felt as though I had found magic!

Have a lovely day!
