Pednvounder Beach and Logan Rock, Porthcurno, and two distant yachts.. Of course this one's for Pam too!

Pednvounder Beach and Logan Rock, Porthcurno, and two distant yachts.. Of course this one's for Pam too! 

The Promontory is commonly known as Logan Rock but it must have a proper name as Logan Rock only refers to a once rocking stone on the top.
The area around the isthmus and a bit landward is the site of a defended ancient settlement called Trereen Dinas (South). 'South' to distinguish it from a similarly named ancient settlement site on Gurnard's Head on the north coast. But I just can't find out the name for the promontory as a whole!.
Can you spot the two yachts?

One of m favourite places The OS map mentions Logan Rock but also Horace ~ does that mean anything to you?
2 months ago.
Andy Rodker has replied to Nick Weall
Horace? Yes it does, but only because I once advised a family of elderly siblings, named Horace, Boris, Maurice ... and of course, Doris! (I forget their surname!!!).
Otherwise no ... but thanks for looking into it. I have never found another name either.

Andy Rodker has replied to Fred Fouarge
My only camera between December 2010 and August 2012 was my Nokia N95 camera-phone. A much better camera than a phone!
Sadly I dropped in a marsh two days after this shot!

Terrific shot Andy, does Treryn Dinas mean something to you as I understand that's a possibility
2 months ago.
Andy Rodker has replied to Roger (Grisly)
Thank you Roger.
From memory (and I hope I'm corrected if wrong)
Trereen, Treryn or today Treen = farm or settlement on a promontory and
Dinas = castle.
So, fortified settlement on a promontory.
Not particularly special to me, Roger (although both sites are wonderful places), just that I have been familiar with the name and sites (both South and North) all my life!

I must confess I hadn't been able to spot the 2 yachts until I read Betty' comment:-)

BUT: I could enjoy wholly this charmed and charming gem of Cornwall with its golden and pink beaches, its majestic rocks and its luminous ocean .. well, I wonder: am I dreaming? :-)
No: simply Andy has generously given us another wonderful image of his homeland
Thank you !

Ah, thats why there was a ten minute gap between your yellow star and comment, Bea!! :o)
Not well defined I admit but they are yachts, I saw them slowly get nearer.
