Dipping Out - New Website Launch

In September I spent a few weeks building a new webblogsite, with the aim of restarting the group "Friends of Blackhead". The original group was responsible for negotiations between the quarry owners and DOC resulting the placement of the Covenant on the Roman baths and Dock headland rock formations in 1991. The aim for the reform was to ensure the conditions of the 1991 covenant were upheld, and protected.
I haven't got the energy to do all this myself, so if anyone is interested to have an informal meeting, and do some work, then please leave a comment and discuss here or at the forum on the Friends of Blackhead website.

I think C may even occur easily by 2030 not 2060.

And even more startling... What Blackhead REALLY used to look like in 1908, looking across Waldronville (pre development) from Saddle Hill. With my photoshopped comparison of what the headland profile was like September 2009.
