Despair or Doom or Something

I swam to the Cliffs of Despair this morning (actually, they are called the Cliffs of Doom or something like that) and made it back feeling better with every stroke. I know, they don't look very intimidating here, but they are. This black lava wall rises straight up out of the water and keeps on going. Until you get close enough to be in its shadow, all you see is a featureless black mass looming higher and higher.

I was hoping to see big critters this morning - friends had seen a big school of Hammerhead Sharks here and big predator sharks are often caught by fishermen from the top of the cliffs - but no luck today. Maybe tomorrow...
