Masts, Splashes and A Notable Gravestone

19 Jan

1   The morning started out full of sunshine and cerulean skies so we went to Mylor where the water just rippling was causing the reflections of the masts to create beautiful zig zags.

3   Isn’t it touching that, two hundred years on, people have marked the tragedy of the ship, Queen’s Transport, being wrecked off Trefusis Point on January 14th 1814? The stone itself is beautifully carved with the lightning, the stormy waves and the ship going down so graphically depicted.

    Beautiful pictures. The gravestone is indeed an honor for the unfortunate folk.

    Great set as always! The first two took my breath away. (I thought the second was from the top of a tall waterfall for a moment.)

    What a beautiful gravestone and carving.. was this the remnants of Wellington’s Peninsula army returning after he’d chased the French back into France?
    One of the little and forgotten sidebars of history….but not forgotten here…so interesting Sally…

    I can’t wait for the daffodils to start showing but I think we’ve snow to get through first. Yaaay

      I don’t think so. There are quite a few daffodils already in flower here in Cornwall. We saw just two last week at Trelissick! Spring is definitely on its way! 🙂
