What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet…

Known today as The Twelve Apostles, this gorgeous limestone formation along the Great Ocean Road was known as the Sow and Piglets until 1922, when it was thought something more catchy might help lure the tourist masses.  The site has only sported nine of these limestone stacks in living memory, and we’re presently down to eight of them, but I guess poetic license prevailed.  Erosion first creates a cave, then further erosion turns that into an arch, the arch collapses…Kodak moment!  On reflection, I think I prefer the original moniker!  (Port Campbell, Victoria, Australia, 31 March, 2011)
