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)

One


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Recently, after all the endless days of rain, slugs like this one appeared on my verandah and on my front pathway.
Usually they appeared late afternoon or at night.

Agh...I don't like slugs. They're all slimy and twisty. I loved your accompanying haiku though.

Gosh -- it HAS been raining at your house! For a minute there I thought I was back in western Oregon. We love slugs there. Eugene even has a festival every fall at which they crown a "slug queen." All tongue-in-cheek and fun!

That is ONE slimy creature! :)
We met a couple from Melbourne on Sunday, gave a lift to them to the center of Casa.
Maybe we should visit Melbourne in the future - they have a house on the beach! :)
