Pedra Branca is one of a pair of of white-tipped outcrops 22 nautical miles to the south-west of the Cape Bruny light-house - to which I introduced you via last week's Skywatch. The white tips are the droppings of generations of sea-birds. It was this barrenness, this isolation, this very bleak communing with nature at its most elemental that attracted Hamish Saunders during Easter 2003.
Come! Sit on this bench and ponder the immensity of the natural world. Squint toward the horizon. Unshackle your mind. Imagine that you see distant ragged outcrops betwixt the swell. Feel the sharp southern squalls burrow into your exposed cheeks. Then, rejoice!
