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)

Small But Big

Holiday units overlooking Port Phillip Bay on the Mornington Peninsula

Perhaps they're quite small
But units with grand views
Are worth the tight space

Shadow Shot Sunday 2

Of course we go on holiday/vacation, we hope for dreamy water views. We choose the hotel to have a place to sleep - and to see places we do not go. The small size matters not, the location is perfect...

I love the contradiction of palm leaf direction. I'd stay there in a heartbeat.

Patti said...

Beautiful feathery shadows from the palm leaves!

I like the Haiku, as always. Someday I'll learn how to write Haiku. ;-)

Happy weekend, Gemma! Have fun seeking shadows again this week.

Sylvia K said...

Wonderful shadow shot for the day, Gemma, as always! Lovely skies, too! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

I love the soft shadows on the wall ...... and I would be quite happy to squeeze into the small accommodation, just to be there on the Peninsula!!

I can see me staying there and enjoying the sun, the shadows, and the whole surrounding area.

Location and view are everything.....

Lesley said...

When you are on holiday, you want to be out enjoying yourself, so small is just fine.
The shadows of the palms would be missed if you stayed inside.

Palm trees makes nice shadows.

Tight space is not too bad a tradeoff for grand views! Looks lovely there.

Dianne said...

I love the leaves on the brick

Lighthousegal said...

It would be worth staying in a small space to have a Grand View. Vacations are all about relaxing, escaping the stresses of everyday life and doing something fun. I'd much rather have a small space and enjoy the area I am visiting any day!
Nice shadows by the way.

Works for me! I live in small houses!

The palm leaf shadows caught my eye first - what a lovely spot for a holiday!
