Pottery sherd just south of Luna's.  I found this placed ona flat rock with a few pieces of interesting rock;  someone else apparently put them there to photgraph.  This piece is a little over an inch on the widest side.  Still has it's glaze.

Hey Roy

Only 2 of your photos loaded (#1 and #4). The rest aren't there, just little blue boxes with ? in them. The page took a really long time to load too. :?

The ones I saw are pretty cool.

I think the photobucket server was having problems tonight.  I tried several times and didn't have any luck.  Couldn't get to my photobucket site either.  Came back a little later and they all loaded ok.

Love the sunset pic!

Mine acted a little funny on pic #3 but the rest seemed to load OK.  Don't know what the problem is but they're showing fine on my machine.  Hope we don't have another spammer piggy backing on photo sites.

They're all there now. No worries.  :D

And they look great! I stayed at Nugent #1 about 2 months ago - it's an awesome spot for sunrise, isn't it?

It has a somewhat more "local" origin.

Bran was the oldest of the Children of Lyr;  he was King of "The Island of the Mighty" (Britain).  Mortally wounded in battle with the Irish, he had his brothers cut off his head, which magically stayed alive until one of them broke the spell.  His head was buried where the Tower of London stands.  The ravens guard both.  Bran himself is identified with the ravens.
