    That’s very pretty George. The sun and clouds make the mountains so very interesting. It’s been so long since I was on the Blue Ridge Pkwy. It surely is lovely. Hope you have a good day. Our rain seems to have ended but the wind chimes are clanging loudly – we are in for a windy day I think!

    Your country is so beautiful, George! Thanks for showing your photos!
    Thanks for your visit. Yes the book by Roy McIver is important for the young Aboriginals who are seeking their identity!

    Water here and water there,
    Water, water everywhere!
    Water to restore the soul,
    Water in a cup or bowl;
    Water gushing in the sink,
    Water clear or dark as ink;
    Water in the stream and bog,
    Water for the newt and frog;
    Water to refresh the wheat,
    Water washing dusty feet;
    Water chasers everywhere
    With loud praises do declare
    That there is no finer thing—
    Water is both queen and king!
