Off the coast of Victoria, Australia sit - or at least sat until a few days aog - the Twelve Apostles. Unfortunately, there were appararently only ever nine limestone sea stacks. But, they remain an icon, adorning Oz guidebooks and travel pages.

We visited the Twelve Apostles last October. Windy and rainy, it was still a striking site.

Well, one of the sea stacks collapsed a day or two ago. Fortunately no one hurt. No plans to reconstruct the stack as far as I know.

Part of one of Australia's most famous natural landmarks has been reduced to a pile of rubble after one of the ruggedly beautiful Twelve Apostles rock pillars collapsed in front of stunned onlookers.
