A Wine-Dark Sea

                                             Brenda Bryant


Maybe not quite 'My World'; it takes eight hours in a plane
To get to get from here to Perth, way in the West.
We went there on a holiday and we'll go there again,
For the trip was one we count among our best.
Rottnest Island, off the coast, is a place for holidays,
And the picture up above shows you the reason.
It's a lovely rocky outcrop full of crags and glorious bays
Perfect for fishing, never mind the season.
And the colour of the water almost took my breath away;
There was almost every shade of blue and green.
That's why I'm planning to repeat that delightful holiday,
And to savour, once again, this lovely scene.

It's stunning. Love to visit there one day. I have relatives in Perth but haven't visited them since I arrived here. I love the colour of the seawater.

Wow! EIght hours by plane...awesome scene. I bet what's under the placid water is just as scenic. Lovely place for a vacation...makes me yearn for something warm and tropical!

It is well worth a trip across Oz to see WA. They too have great beaches and bays as you show in this photo.
