Remember all the ships' names painted on those cliffs? I was there a couple of months ago and could just make out a smidgin of white paint (I think). Maybe today's sailors don't get the time, or enough grog!

I thought those names would have been worth preserving, but I suppose they only matter to the likes of us.
