Great spot to rest your weary bones :)

Ha Ha, Nick!
I know you know Penberth Cove and have posted terrific shots of it, but did you rest your weary bones here after a slog up the Coastpath to the cliff top (on the way towards Porthcurno, rather than Lamorna)??

Sorry!!! I should learn to read all the titles and legends under the pictures (I would learn quite a bit, I'm sure!) I sometimes just look at the pictures (especially that many of the descriptions are in French and are rather long, and I am a bit too impatient-- I think old age has something to do with that :)

A tomb facing the ocean, as an invitation to to be entered in the legend and to remain always living with the rhythms of tides and in the memory of those who knew it, it had to be somebody very important or very liked, then let us have a thought as this famous unknown whose final resting place crossed the time.

Andy Rodker club has replied to SLANG club
Thank you, Slang!
Yes, maybe. But I think of an alternative scenario. A chief very much feared who forced the people to build this tomb for him in his lifetime. Then, when he died, the happy people tipped the body over the cliff and got on with their lives in peace!
