In my last post, I showed the entrance to a tunnel on the beach below the house owned by one of the Aussie’s ghost children.
The house sits up on the cliff that’s ubiquitous along the beach in Santa Cruz. The tunnel at first appears to be some kind of run-of-the-mill culvert handling runoff from the street. But actually, it’s a kind of U-shaped culvert, with two outlets to the ocean dividing a single stream of runoff.
We followed it around for a while,
and then saw light again:
(Like Kate says, in and out of the dark, but a lot more in the light than than we used to be.)
The tunnel leads out onto an isolated beach caught between two arms of the cliff. Here’s a view to the right:
And here’s the view off to the left:
In between, there’s a large, solitary rock just sitting there, like it fell straight out of the sky:
It’s made of the same chalky material seen the photo we found in the cathedral tower.
And, just like in that photo, there are all kinds of symbols and messages carved onto its face. (Continued in my next post) — Flyss
