phinz, please tell me you started on the east coast of the US.

I actually thought of doing that but then thought about how much coastline there is on the planet and rejected it as impractical!

I probably wound have started on the west coast and headed in the wrong direction!

I actually started on the West coast, based on the orientation of the land.

Here's one. Have fun. I'll be around later this afternoon/evening. What is this?

You are probably right....
This is Phinz after all! He doesn't believe in easy.

After looking at it closer, does the end taper to a flat point? or is that just an optical illusion
