St. Michael’s Mount

10 Aug

Going over to the Mount is something we never seem to do, even though it’s right on our doorstep. But this week, I did go over and it was lovely!

We took the boat from Marazion:

And then had a good wander around the Mount. We discovered you can spend a happy couple of hours there without actually paying admission or going up to the top. And with the boat fare at only £1.50, it’s a cheap day out!

The café is rather nice, especially if you sit outside:

The island was quite crowded, so I think I’d like to go back in the winter when nobody’s around. Queen Victoria had the right idea in 1846. She came in September:

By the time we were ready to leave, the tide was out, so we were able to walk back over the causeway. Obviously a lot of others had the same idea:

I was quite taken with the  notion that we were walking on the seabed.

A lovely place which is definitely worth another visit.
