    Nice, I really like photos that members take themselves.

    Biological weathering maybe, but I'd be more willing to believe the sea urchins and whatever was just taking advantage of the weathering that was already there.

    I see you have a flicker account. Do you pay for it or do they have free accounts like Photobucket?

    Let me set you straight. I said I wouldn't live there, but I might visit during the better times of the year.

    I don't know. The crevices seem to fit each sea urchin perfectly. Yes, flickr is free but it’s limited to 300MB bandwidth. I haven’t gotten the hang of Google plus, as of yet, but it’s unlimited. You can check out my favorites, if you like. I didn’t realize that Google+ and Picasa were basically the same thing. They’re not all publically displayed but Google does have almost all of my pictures now, yikes!

    Here's one that I took on a recent ski trip.

    Photo taken in my back yard in June 2010 during our 'better time of year.'
    Madelaine and Yukon's Handyman, my little pride and joy, presently started under saddle at 22 months of age. Here he was just coming two months of age. How quickly they grow up...

    Thanks for providing a working title as reference, KJ. I cannot say that I have ever come across Yarn Bombing before even though it has been documented since 2004. Here is another example of guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting as it is also called.

    I've stood on the edge of these cliffs and, yes it feels like you're at the edge of the Earth, definitely feels like the edge of the country.

    Just to be here means you are friggin' miles from anywhere, it's the southern edge of the vast Nullabor Plain and the nearest 'civilisation' is Adelaide, Darwin or Perth, all thousands of kilometres away.

    Yeah, standing there (and they're huge) is quite humbling, nothing but Antarctica way to the south and the massive Australian desert behind you.

    Good place to get some serious thinking done. How does one usually get into the position you talked about? Bad place to run out of gas or have a break down.

    The Inhabited Volcanic Island of Aogashima (Looks like a nice place to live, but volcanoes can be very bad news when least expected)

    Usually, you'd be crossing the continent east to west or vice versa, doing one hell of a road trip, There are roadhouses about every 100 miles or so and a reasonable amount of traffic so you wouldn't die out there (there are plenty of places in Oz where you might actually die and people do).

    If you look closely you can make out the road.

    Imagine also that when the wind blows from the southern ocean in Winter it can be freezing cold and when it blows from the desert in Summer it's scorchingly hot and dry.

    From the cliffs you can see Southern Right Whales or Humpbacks or edge tailed eagles or albatrosses or Emus.

    This is the center piece of the Children's Museum in Boston.

    It's the coolest 3 story tall kids climbing thing I've ever seen. My granddaughter is in there somewhere.

    Kind of makes you wish you could be a kid again.

    Adults are allowed in if they think they can do it.

    One mother did have to go in to retrieve her reluctant-to-leave son.

    Amazingly enough, in the four hours we were there today, I didn't here a single kid cry or whine. It might be one of the best places on earth for a kid.

    We had something similar but the kids kept crapping in it. I believe it became a health hazard.

    Wiener dog.
