    What an amazingly beautiful place. I have made a not of this place in my notebook, so if I ever end up in this area, I will know what I would like to experience myself.

      How incredibly tragic to see the nests made up of toxic plastics and "garbage".

      Our addiction to plastics in every part of our lives is soon looking like mankind doom.
