Well, it's not far down to paradise, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see.
Believe me.

Flowerpot Island is part of Fathom Five National Marine Park
these fantastical rock formations were created by waves pounding at the cracks in the limestone, gradually wearing away the softer lower limestone from the harder dolomite top
there used to be three of these flowerpot shaped sea stacks, but one fell down in 1903

as you come around to the other side 

of the bigger of the flowerpots, 
you can make out a face

Christopher Columbus

embodies confusion, conflict and controversy.
here we have what is claimed to be the house 
Christopher Columbus was born in.
though, no one knows if he was even born in Genoa, or when, 
or if his name really was Colon or Colombe.
critics claim this to be one of the 
biggest tourist traps in Genoa. 
(and some random guy who would not move)
