I'm on the inland side of the Mt, 1/2 an hour to the beach, but that can be in 3 directions  ;)

This is the view from out at the Cape, it's actually pretty rough and windswept out there, prevailing wind is off the sea, and if you look out and miss Tasmania the next land is South Africa. Does make it one of the best windsurfing spots in the world though.



This pic is from anouther 30 miles out, from the days when I was fixing computers for the oilfield company.



The pic is taken from the floating production station, a converted supertanker that was anchored out there. Nice place to visit, bad place to be stuck when the weather gets too rough for the chopper to lift you off  :-\

It might not be so bad with satellite imagery. But, in some jurisdictions that take aerial photography I've found that the bottom edge could be east, north, or west or more appropriately south. The bottom edge is where they right the info on the photo for scale, photo number, map sheet, date flown..etc.
Move'n on.

Yeah, but some of you folks down under live by the seat of your pants anyway. I've been in bush planes and choppers on the BC coast in bad weather, and guess who the dare devils are.  ::)

 :D :D
Move'n on.
