Summer Morning ......

Henley Beach Jetty  ~

Jetties are always interesting places on a summer morning
people fishing - diving off the side 
 or just leaning on the rails pondering what the day might bring

Country Roads .......

 Roaming around sunburnt country roads
 in the Lower Flinders ranges of South Australia
reminded me of the poem "My Country"

" I love a sunburnt country
a land of sweeping plains
of ragged mountain ranges
  of droughts and flooding rains"
                                                                              Dorothea Mackellar  1904

A lovely rainbow Bee-Eater looking  for a tasty morsel for his Breakfast
This is the first time I've seen one of these sweet little birds.

They are just returning to the Southern states of Australia
following their Winter migration
to warmer climes

Royal Adelaide Hospital ......

Our new hospital - built amid much controversy
some people wanted to stay with the old
other felt a new hospital was the way to go.

Waitpinga Beach ......

~ Waitpinga Beach  Encounter Bay   South Australia ~

A  pretty sight but wild treacherous waters and strong rips
remain a constant reminder of the many lives 
 lost along this rugged coast

Definitely best left to the expert surfers
