Dollar Cove, Gunwalloe, Cornwall 24 April 2015
My eye was drawn to something red up on the cliff edge. This turned out to be an anonymous poppy wreath securely fastened to the turf with tent pegs. It is still quite new looking, but what it commemorates, I have no idea.

Dollar Cove derives from stories of a treasure ship which sank off there in 1780; the ship was reported to have been carrying a cargo of silver dollars.
