Here's the "Batcave" Grammer, the REAL one! The Dogs wouldn't go near the entrance even,
and I certainly wasn't going to poke my head in there for a look...


I see Gems all over the place here... :shock: Are they Opals?
I spot a Nugget there aswell Spud! :cool:


Sorry folks, but actually, there's something quite naughty about this hole... look at the pink Clam! :mrgreen:
All that molten Gold flowing into that hole...


See the little footprint on the right aswell...gotta go back there and set up a Shrine...A StrumShine! :D

I was just this moment thinking the very same thing Grammer...
4 miles each way? that walk...and then add 370 miles up to the cruxifiixng thing?
I reckon roundabout all...about 14 miles? I dunno? Ask my legs!

I checked the tide before I left Snowy, at about 4pm it started to go out. To be honest you would get stuck at a high tide, maybe not big trouble but you would more than likely be standing close to the cliff for quite a few hours until it went out again.
