Summer Morning ......

Henley Beach Jetty  ~

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
