You keep showing pictures like these and I may want to move there myself. Looks like an awesome place to live. Good luck to you on your possible move.

Looks like a tough place to move to - I suppose you'll have to work, too? If I were to live there I'd have a really hard time going to work. Love the beach scenes, looks fabulous.

Thank you everyone. Hopefully the move will happen and help me recapture my mojo.

Quote:
The Stone Fish is only dangerous if stepped on or caught. 13 dorsal spines project from venomous glands along the back . The venom is involuntarily expelled when pressure is applied to them.
The sting causes excruciating pain and a great deal of swelling rapidly develops causing death to tissues. The severity of the symptoms depends on the depth of penetration and the number of spines penetrated. The symptoms of the venom are muscle weakness, temporary paralysis and shock, which may result in death if not treated.

They can be very dangerous because they are so well camouflaged. Especially dangerous when diving because of the incredible pain and so loss of control.
I used to dive a lot in Asia (legions of Stonefish) and the nearest I came was when I put my (ungloved) hand on a rock and realised I had missed a stonefish by just a couple of inches - it didn't flinch.

Gorgeous looking spot Rodney - so jealous ! Good luck and hope it happens for you.
