    Very funny, Rockgor. Not sure if the Dalai Lama has ever visited this place.

    I googled some images, this picture looks like it could be the cliffs of Capri, Italy or Thailand. Am I even close? Kim :)

    Hmmmm,think you've got us with this one.
    I'll guess at Hawaii as well.Better do some Googling.

    not finding it YET. Doesn't look like ocean water, so maybe on a Bay or a Sea? Am finding some pictures in Croatia which have similiar shorelines. Also, near Big Sur, California, some pictures look similiar.

    and good afternoon, Paul and Rosie.

    Congratulations, Paul! I don't know how you found it, but it is the world-famous Na Pali coast on the north side of the island of Kauai, Hawaii. It's famous for its towering cliffs (some rising as high as 4000 feet) and waterfalls, lush valleys, secluded beaches, ancient Hawaiian ruins, hiking trails, and kayaking.

    If it looks familiar, the opening sequence of the 70s TV show, "Fantasy Island," was shot there, as were the opening scenes in the "Jurassic Park" movies. Spielberg thought the Na Pali Coast would look like the T-Rex infested islands off of Costa Rica.

    (The TV show, LOST, on the other hand is shot on the island of Maui).

    Paul, your tickets to Hawaii are in the mail!

    Can't wait,my passport's at the ready,haha.
    Twas a lucky guess I reckon.From my earlier guess at Hawaii I Googled on Hawaii coast & surprised myself by finding it after a few minutes.
    Or maybe it was the Fantasy Island intro,can remember watching that year's ago,"Hey Boss".

    Hey Ken...I answered first! I saw the volcanic rock. It was a dead giveaway. I didn't google nuttin, lol :)

    Sorry; I did miss your guess of Hawaii! Well done, indeed.

    That's quite a snake in your photo. Is a chicken snake one that doesn't have the courage of other snakes? :)

    I think I would be pretty chicken if I saw that in my backyard.

    Congratulations, Paulmack (and Fmandy)!
