Quoting Tabithag

This reminded me of somewhere a friend had visited, so I looked at her photos and saw One Foot Island Beach in the Cook Islands, which looks very similar. Is it there?

Yes! The English translation of Tapuaeta. Legend has it that name comes from a war story where a father and son were escaping the island and to hide his son he carried him on his back so there would be only one set of footprints in the sand. We visited three little islands in Aitutaki lagoon and this was easily the prettiest. Here's some more pics:

Spotted some wildlife. This one is a baby Stonefish but still has the ability to kill you if you step on it

Looks like an abandoned open mine site. South of Spain?

It is an old mine, but not in Spain.

Seems like this is harder than I'd expected so let's add a couple of photos nearby...

The railway station looks very like UK Victorian/Edwardian station architecture but I don't think it's the UK because of the parched landscape.

Australia?
