Tennyson's poem about the sea

When I wasn't taking pictures of dogs at Lorne - missing Penny and thinking how much she would have liked to be there - I was photographing the cliffs and the rocky outcrops.

The coast along The Great Ocean Road is a photographer's paradise!

The rocky part of the shore made me think of the sad poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson that a long-ago teacher made me memorise. (I'm glad to have had such a tough-loving teacher!) It's called Break, Break, Break.

What an absolutely gorgeous photo! We wish Penny could have come along too!

Love ya lots

Maggie and Mitch, though it pains me to say this, perhaps I had a more relaxing time without Penny! I'm sure I wouldn't have taken the dozens of photos I did, because I would have been playing with Penny and enjoying being in the moment rather than being contemplative.
