Heads or Tails

The first photograph was taken from the Lighthouse.

This is Southern most Tip of Africa. The residents enjoy the distinction of being the Africans living closest to the South Pole. It is also the point where the two mighty oceans, Indian and Atlantic, meet.

"At the end of the 15th century the early Portuguese seafarers christened this tip "Cabo das Agulhas" which means "Cape of Needles" and refers to the needle of the compass which at this point shows no real deviation between true north and magnetic north. A truly magic and desolate place, where suddenly one begins to understand the difficulties the early seafarers faced." http://www.lagulhas.co.za/
