Mar 9th, 2017: Azure Window

This is The Azure Window, also known as the Dwejra Window, a 92-foot-tall (28 m) limestone natural arch on the island of Gozo in Malta,and a popular tourist destination.

Wouldn't you love to be on the beach with your arm around your lover, peering through the arch like it was a big screen to the future. Imagining the vine covered cottage with the picked fence, a cat and dog, toys and flowers scattered about?

Forget it, the arch fell down in a storm yesterday morning.

This is why we can't have nice things.

That's like the third major stone feature of great fame to fall apart in recent years! One of the sandstone arches in, of course, Arches National Park collapsed of natural causes a few years ago, and a famous US east coast landmark, The Old Man of the Woods, disappeared due to a landslide rearranging the cliff face so it no longer resembles a human profile. Not to mention it hasn't been that long since The Valley of Smokes on the Kamchatka Peninsula, extremely famous for having the largest concentration of active geysers on the Ring of Fire, was two-thirds buried by an immense mudslide. I bet whoever spotted THAT mess on the satellite photos (which is the only way they knew because not only was it a World Heritage Site, it's still infested with very large bears) just about wet themselves when they realized what they were looking at.

Looks like it left a new "Old Man" (or maybe Old Woman) at the top there.
