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.

I do like that rock formation. My husband would say that the rocks have been folded so that they are almost vertical and then weathered.ReplyDelete
you captured the peaceful nature of the beach. makes me want to walk it with you.ReplyDelete
It kind of takes your eyes and mind a little while to get used to a different kind of "busy"ness, doesn't it?ReplyDelete
Bush is so busy with leaves and grass and branches.
Beach is so busy with different kinds of gritty bits and seaweed and rocks.
Yes I can see a camel! Look forward to the stroll.ReplyDelete
I see the camel but he should be in the desert not the sea. He must be lost. I will just love to walk on the beach with you.ReplyDelete
umm ... no ... not really. This is a gap where I want another hump to be.ReplyDelete
Hang about a tick whilst I take my shoes and socks off ... I'm coming ... wait for me ...
Nope, don't see a camel ;-).ReplyDelete
