The bell tower at Anna's Hope!
I've been half looking for this since seeing a picture over a year and a half ago. I thought I knew more or less where to find it, but the bush was so thick there was no way to tell.
Just this week the land was cleared and I got to see it for the first time.
This is supposedly an old picture from 1900 or so, but I have my doubts.
There's been some significant rebuilding if its the same tower.
Here's an article on Anna's Hope with a mention of the bell tower at the bottom.

Turns out the parade float we ended up on actually floated.
At the end of the parade route we kept going just out of town to the boat ramp,
launched the float,
and motored back into town
where we tied up on the boardwalk
and kept the fun going
well into the night.

Every now and then, when hiking up to the Hamm's Bluff lighthouse, people see feral mountain goats running along the cliffs.
Evidently one got left behind this morning and followed some hikers all the way up, then all the way back down to their car. They coaxed the little guy into the car and were dropping him off at the Creque Dam Farm to be looked after while we were there this morning.
His umbilical chord hasn't even fallen off yet. Hopefully the other goats at the farm will welcome him into the fold.

My camera can't exist that deep.
10x atmospheric pressure.
(147 Lbs per square inch of water pressure)
No colors left- only indigo blue and black
59 minutes of decompression with 4 different gases for 10 minutes at the bottom-
after swimming straight down for 5 minutes to get there.
Its a hell of a thing to look UP at tiny silhouettes of big sharks that are too deep for recreational divers to see.
Aftermath on the dock.
