Sometimes you can find works of art in amongst the trees where someone has carved a tree or placed a metal sculpture in the woods so that you are enchanted when you come across it.
What I found today wasn't a sculpture or a carving, but it was still a surprise as it was quite unexpected and I do think that if Mum hadn't pointed it out to me (she'd seen it before) then it is quite likely that I would have walked right past it and not even noticed.
I mean, it looks like this...
But if you look closely, you can see that this log is rather special.
And if you look even closer you can see what those strange looking things are!
Yes. they are coins!! They've been hammered in by some unknown person (or persons!) and left for those people walking down the Lydford Gorge to find. The Lydford Gorge itself is worthy of a Show and Tell all of it's own, so I think that I will leave that one for another time.
