HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to my daughter and her family in Sydney and to all the Australian blogger friends!
I love the red unmanned lightship, a floating lighthouse, built in 1917.
Behind it is the Australian National Maritime Museum.
Near the museum is the Welcome Wall, with names of many of the immigrants who came to these shores.
Please enlarge the photos and read the moving words.
I too was an immigrant and I savor the memory of stepping down from the ship and setting foot on Israeli soil for the first time, that bright morning of March 18, 1968.
America, Israel, Australia--all lands that welcomed newcomers. All built on diversity.
