An Outing to West Head, or, Looking For a Cool Breeze.

Somewhere to go that would be cooler than home.

Aboriginal engravings.
'Pecked petroglyphs' as the engraving are know, were made by striking the rock surface with a pointed stone or a strong shell. Small pits or holes were made and usually overlapped to form a groove. Using water as a lubricant, rough grooves were smoothed out to form an outline.
 The pecked designs took a variety of forms - concentric circles, lines, the outlines of animals, people, fish, birds, weapons, reptiles, animal tracks and mythical beings.

Out of the water, boat storage.

If I only had a spare 5 or 6 million dollars, this could be mine.

Something to tow behind the bigger one.

Wherever I went these 'beams'  would radiated from my head.
