Description

The legend says that Thor (the Norse God of Thunder) created the sinkhole after striking the earth, creating a hole 20 feet deep. There is a hole at the top and a hole at the bottom that drains out to the sea created from erosion. When we arrived, you couldn't even see it, but as we waited and watched and the sun began to set, it emerged into view close to high tide. A rock came into view that I could climb up on to take the shot. The ocean spray made it difficult to get a clean photo without water spots on the lens! It was worth the wait!
