Going got tougher, with plenty of vehicles getting stuck. You sometimes had to push the limits of what you could do with a 4x4, the 4 liter V8 makes a lovely sound when the limiter starts to kick in.

We checked the tide, had a long way to go, you can get trapped between the desert and the sea if the tide comes in.

Jesus, the ocean must have seemed like a piece of heaven after that commute.

Stellar reportage. I don't think I would have ever seen non-googled pictures of that place if it weren't for this, so thanks for putting it up.

We passed by a whale graveyard, hundreds of them were killed here in the old days, the tide washed their remains to shore.

Remarkable. Thank you-
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
