Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
"To muse, to creep, to halt at will, to gaze ... such sweet wayfaring"
I remember when you first tried your seaside shots last year and what a shock it was to open SW and not have bush or countryside laid out before me.ReplyDelete
You are good at depicting the joy of being beside the seaside, too.
I agree am much more comfortable with the seaside now. But don't worry we get back to the countryside at the end of this trip ... in fact we do some countryside near the sea before we go home.ReplyDelete
I have never understood what the fuss is about! ;-)ReplyDelete
It's been lovely buried inside for a time, but your pics have reminded me how terrific it is to be out and about too. Must put down the brush and the computer for an afternoon soon!
What a wonderful view this morning on your blog - as I sip my coffee and gear up for the day. The photos are beautiful, have a sense of mystery and with peace in the final shot. Thank YOU!ReplyDelete
those sweet little foot prints remindReplyDelete
me of my babies' prints long ago.
What a great triptych! Fantastic view and light on the bottom pic.ReplyDelete
Ha, the sun on the bird's (I guess) footprints hmmmmm ... I want to go to the seaside ... I want to go to the seaside ... no seaside at my place, duh.ReplyDelete
But I can have a look at your photos! :-)
My kids would love to find all the tracks in the sand, dig out whatever is in that hole . . .ReplyDelete
