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)

Seashell Shadow

Seashell on Rosebud beach, Mornington Peninsula

Beauty cast on sands
Like an exile from the sea
Like a frame of life

The lone scallop shell sits on the sand, its shapely countenance brightening up the drab wet sand. It stands out nicely!

Lovely shell. Looking for shells is my favorite thing to do at the beach. I can walk for miles along the water's edge searching for that perfect shell. Plus the sound of the ocean is amazing.
Happy Sunday!
