We finished of our river cruise with a visit to this natural venue. It wasn’t even a particularly windy day but the sheer power of Nature pushing that sea around in such a fashion left us awestruck with wonder. Unforgettable.

I visited through the week and no one was around. It was such a peaceful and beautiful place. Pristine and nature abounds. Truly is worth the drive. You are in awe of nature and how unpredictable it is.
