At low tide, follow the footsteps of pilgrims and giants as you cross the historic causeway to St Michael’s Mount. Starting from the beachfront in the town of Marazion, it takes just minutes to walk across the bay from the mainland to the island.
I mentioned before that the morning through early afternoon that we were able to visit St. Michael’s Mount was rainy, drizzly, overcast and finally sunny. Being from Seattle this did not deter our visit.
The St. Michael rose window dates back to the 15th Century.After our tour of the castle we visited the sub tropical gardens.
We were intrigued with the pill boxes we saw and investigated inside them taking in all the views from the small windows of defence.
When we were done with the castle and gardens we asked for a recommendation for lunch. We were ready to be inside and out of the misty weather. We followed the recommendation and landed at Ben’s Cornish Kitchen.
The food was very good and high end. We were happy to pay the lunch time lower prices!After we ate and warmed up the weather warmed up, too. We headed out to the little town of Marazion and enjoyed checking out the shops. On the way home from St. Michael’s Mount we stopped at Marks and Spencer and then we picked up Cornish Pasties for dinner from Portreath Bakery. We relaxed and packed up for our next days trip into London. Our countryside adventures were over. Here’s one last view of now sunny Marazion Beach.
Back here in the states life moves on. Katie and I did put in some hours in some stores today looking for a top to complete her Thanksgiving outfit and doing some early Christmas shopping. I tweaked my back yesterday so it was hard getting in and out of the car but once I was up and walking things went well. Happy to say we were able to click some things off our lists. Soon the crowds in the stores will be unbearable for me so I’m happy to get things done now…Have you started?
