The most beautiful things on earth


Large ocean waves are the most beautiful things on earth. This You-Tube video is of a surfing site called cloudbreak on the island of Tavarua, Fiji. These 25' waves come in from deep water and hit a shallow reef. They are considered to be the most perfectly formed waves on earth. They look like they are made from a machine. http://www.youtube.com/embed/40mQdxqOSUk?rel=o

Same.

I feel blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places on the earth. Thirty years I've been in Colorado and the mountains still take my breath away.

Need some help in how to transfer one of these videos to this site. You can go to you-tube and type in cloudbreak and it is the 1st one on the list.

I used to live in Colorado, and then my parents decided to move to a city on the east coast. However, Colorado remains the most beautiful place I've ever seen, yes, it even beets Hawaii
(Where in Colorado do you live?)

That is indeed one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. (It still doesn't beat Hawaii and Colorado though)

Your parents did you a grave disservice! I live in a suburb of Denver. It's amazing to be only an hour or two's drive from scenes like that picture.

I do have to give a shout out to New Zealand. Both islands are gorgeous but I was fairly amazed by how much the south island reminded me of home. My friend and I were laughing about how we traveled halfway across the world to see beautiful mountains exactly like the ones two hours from our home.
