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)

Australia Day Flags on Flinders

Flinders Street station Melbourne displayed flags for Australia Day celebrations yesterday.
In my Dromana world on the peninsula, there were early morning fun runs along the foreshore, a free bacon and egg roll breakfast (only sausage on a roll last year), vintage car displays, music by the pier and the opportunity to have a ride in a surf boat.

A day for outdoors
A day to hear the music
Of Australian worlds

Hosted by Sandy Wren Sylvia
