Esoterical allusions..


 
This structure known as 'the monument arch' is a stone's throw away from yesterdays sundial and infinitely more intriguing.. there's no link to be found, no information other than it is also a popular destination for wedding photos! The stone plinth above the rustic arch, the mosaic tiled flooring, encircled seating with it's boundary of rocks, steps leading down through the arch to the sea (bottom two shots) entice my imagination to soar :) I see shadowy figures on the eve of a solstice full moon and.. well you where I'm going with this! Again perfectly placed along this rocky outcrop of coastline it's almost impossible not be a wee bit fanciful, or is that just moi :) It's Anzac Day today, so it will be a 4.30am rise for the Dawn Service in Kings Park. Happy Friday, take care...

  4. Oh the stories one could make up about a place like this! It reminds me of the ruins of ancient Rome. I have to add that the sea in your photos is the color of sapphires. Gorgeous.

  8. No historical info available online? How odd - and mysterious.

    The place looks suitable for a Monty Python sketch.

  10. "Just a stone's throw away", huh ? Better make sure there are no glass houses in the neighborhood.
