    not sure but looks like there are ruins there from old civilizations? what about the perfect circular stones, and the square shaped stones on the bridge of the coast? ….

      True. The stone spheres look very much the same as the ones found only in Costa Rica. These were artificial, and still nobody knows who built them.

      Very nice pictorial. Love the jumping bears.

    These stones are geological forms called ‘concretions’. Nothing human about them – you can look up the name on Wikipedia: “A concretion is a hard, compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between particles, and is found in sedimentary rock or soil.”

    I’ve seen lots of them at Spitsbergen/Svalbard, only not quite as large as these.
