Well, that looks looks a powerboat to me, so don't forget... High maintenance girls like powerboats. Interesting women love sailing.

North Oz is correct but of course you'll need to get closer than that.

I did cover quite a bit of Northern Oz back in the day but I didn't go here.

So the bucket list might well include the young lady, though I fear I'd fail the physical, but more important is the locale.

If you are looking for the name of the actual waterfalls they are known as the King George Falls.

My apologies. I missed your previous post. You are of course quite correct.

All yours.

Back from the traveling to the north. It may be a long time before this long looking beach is identified.

Maybe the perspective is deceiving and those cars aren't on the beach, but I lived is SoCal for 30 years and I can't think of anywhere in the L.A. area where you can park on the beach.

I does look like SoCal and it kind of looks familiar but And I don't remember LA County lifeguard huts being blue... but it's been a while. Malibu have blue huts but I don't know of a marina behind the beach. I'm guessing SoCal but either further north or further south... out of the L.A. jungle

edit: Does look smoggy......
