St Michael's Mount, Marazion, Cornwall

On our way to the Minack Theatre we drove by the turning for St Michaels' Mount and you could see the island from the main road. I know I'm sad but I got properly excited! Our original plan was to head to the Mount on Friday as we knew that it was closed on Saturday but due to the aforementioned car problems we had to change our plans.

If you are heading to the Mount then you do need to check the website for opening times and the times of the tide so you know whether you'll be walking or getting the boat. It's a lovely island but I don't know that I'd want to be stranded there :) We made sure that we got there early enough to walk over when the the tide was out and parked right by the beach at a cost of £5 for the entire day. This was our first view:

The path over to the Mount is quite rocky so my white, battered converse were not my best idea. It was also packed, which I was naively surprised at thinking no one would be interested in going when it was closed.....

As everything was closed we could only have a potter around the harbour but it's a cute place:

The sea is sooooo clear that you can see the fishes:

There was some amazing flora and fauna too. I just loved these succulents:

Unfortunately I only got a couple more shots:

We did go back later that evening though to see if it looked any different with the tide in:

Just gorgeous! I can't wait to go back and explore properly.
