Any guesses as to where I might be heading. :)

After Doo-N-time in Doo Town, I kept on driving down the road following the signs to the Tasman Arch and Devil’s Kitchen. These two are only a 5 minute walk from each other so I parked at the Tasman Arch and followed the path first to another lookout and then on to the Devil’s Kitchen.

The Devil’s Kitchen and the Tasman Arch are both formations made by the sea wearing through weaker strata of cliff rock over the last 6000 years until first an arch is formed, as we still see with the Tasman Arch and then when the ‘roof’ collapses we are left with a formation like the Devil’s Kitchen.

While standing at the lookout point for the Devil’s Kitchen I met an Irish lass and we chatted a bit, but unfortunately her tour bus was leaving and our conversation went unfinished.

Following the path back to my car I realised I had not seen the Tasman Arch but when I got back to my car, I look seaward and there it was, this huge hole in the wall that I had just walked over to get to the lookout (you’ll see what I mean when you look at the photo). I felt a little silly not seeing it before, but I saw it now, and what a magnificent sight.

Quite often the things we look for, are right under our nose, and to top it off: sometimes you need to step back to see the bigger picture :)
