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)

Barefoot Bowling

Sign at a Mornington Bowling Club.
The fact that the sign appears to be temporary - an attached banner - implies that this could be a seasonal event.
The photo was taken in early January 2012 - our Australian summer time.

Odd experience
Barefoot bowling sounds risque
May bities be gone

What a great sign for the day, Gemma! I can't bowl with shoes on, let alone barefoot! Love to start the day with a smile! Thanks! Hope your week is going well!

LOL - but let's hope no one drops the bowl on their feet!
