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)

Just Doing Their Thing!

At times, when the tide is out, the waters at Rosebud beach are very shallow.
And that is when you see some strange sights.
People seem to walk on water (sandbars) near boats.
Birds don't mind keeping their eye on activities.

At low tide
Wander far out in the bay
No swimming needed

Well, here's hopin' your holidays were grand!!! I finally have a day off after working 3 weeks, 7 days in a row, I'm sick of work and am ready to create. I'll be painting furniture and making soap for the next 5, but I'll be at home and the chickens will be running wild, boy(girl) am I ready for it!

Still no snow for us, but we all know it's coming, sooner or later, it is what it is, but at least we are on the downside of it. Hopefully I'll get back into the SSS, now that I'm not so pressed for enjoy those summer sea breezes for me Gemma and know that I wish the best for you in this new year!

Hugs a bunch from a land far, far away...IOWA(not Idaho)!

I do like the illusion of walking on water, nice shot. The cormorant seems to be enjoying the sun and drying his wings.
