ST MICHAELS MOUNT........Lies a couple of miles east of Penzance. This image has been flipped for the sake of aesthetics, will show you the real view in a bit. It is joined to the mainland at a village called Marazion by this causeway which floods twice a day on the tide.
I know you will think me totally ungrateful but on checking the weather at 0730h the Met office were predicting heavy thundery showers so we gave it an hour and when we were still basking under a cloudless blue sky set off. It's about an hour and a half walk, took us two, what with me limping and Molly sniffing. No bus till around noon Sundays.
If anyone from the Met Office reads this please tell me why you bother updating weather every couple of hours if all you produce is gibberish. OK it's a civil service job but have some pride.
Reality is on the right, not as pleasing to my eye as the left hand image. Comments please.
The low winter sun, welcome though it is, plays havoc with my attempts at photography. Shadows everywhere, mostly mine. All the following images have been well gone over but not, for the purists, flipped.
The harbour.....Will try and find out why it was built, I actually stayed here a night whilst skippering a charter yacht many years ago.Remember a devil to get into but much easier getting in than dealing with the ferry boats, who ply the waters between here and the mainland in summer.
Impressive, pity we couldn't get a closer view.
Hopefully off to Cape Cornwall tomorrow. It's dog clip day Tuesday. Another busy week, makes me wonder what I would do if I had a job!
