The sight was breathtaking. I was glad that we had come. I had almost been bored to death in the car ride; but as mum had said at least ten times the car ride was going to be worth it. So we had travelled 3 hours so mum could show us this secluded spot. Facing towards the sea was a stone pillar reaching for the sky. Surrounding it was the fallen remains of what had been a grand building. Mum said the building had been mostly standing when she had last visited but the recent storms had taken their toll.
