There are so many layers of civilization on the Orme from Bronze Age copper mines to this lookout post.Thanks for an unusual view.

I love to explore these kind of places. Something trigged the addition of watermark Geoff?

Not particularly Paul, it’s just something we have decided to introduce to help reinforce our branding!

A fascinating, somber picture…Do you still know people who lived through those fearful days, where people had to keep a tense watch on the skies and the coastline? a very sobering thought…

My father took part in the D-Day landings and actually died on the date they took place, June 6th. Albeit 49 years later.

Very dramatic and it brings to mind lots of images from that era…I was too young to serve then, but was old enough to know many that did serve …

Even on the California coast, one finds (if one looks) vestiges of watching the coast for the WWII enemy. I am reminded of my father when I see things like this.

It looks like a good hiding place too. I assume someone made that opening for the lookout purpose?
