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)

Yeah, great travel!

the dodgy thing that won't load properly is something to do with Adobe flash player - it gives me a message asking me to close it down.

What a great, colorful sign and a great capture for the day, Gemma! I've never seen one like this on our beaches, although 'dogs on a leash' signs are pretty much everywhere! Always love your haiku! Hope your week is going well!
