Phenomenal! Could this possibly be the single most Romantic place on earth?

I'll make sure to bring you along on a date next time I go, George. :)

Seriously, though, it was pretty amazing. Not sure if I'd call it the single most Romantic place in the world, but ... wait, hang on ... I hope you're not referring to Miriam's affectionate treatment of the fossils? ;)
