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)

Stand Up Paddling

Parked (a trailer attached to a 4WD) close to Dromana beach is this sign on material sides protecting tiers of paddle boards.
For some reason their name - Peninsula Stand Up Paddling School -sounds quite amusing!
Not sure why!

It does sound funny! We saw some people at the Lake last lsulmmer paddling standing up; first time I'd heard of it.

Andy said...

I've seen people doing it. With my luck I would fall into the water on first try.

You must have to have a good sense of balance for that!

Stand up paddling doesn't sound quite as funny as Sups school!
