We are back on schedule with the planned day's outing for today, as Hamish was feeling much better, and so, after checking with the Mount's offices to ensure that it was open and not cut off with bad weather, the four of us headed off down to Marazion for our day on the Mount.
I had already been online and got the tide times at the start of the week, so we knew that it was low tide and we could therefore walk over.
Following a steep climb up the Pilgrims Steps, we reached the battlements, where I could not resist showing my cheeky side, and Sally-Ann and Mike showing me how it should be done.
Despite the rain during the night, the day was panning out to be a fantastic one. Lovely and warm, with blue skies.
From here, we could see the causeway that we had just crossed, already disappearing under the rising tide.
The rooms were all beautifully kept and laid out. I tried out being lady of all I surveyed, but some of the others in the room just laughed - The cheek of them!
From inside and on top, we then went down, down, down, to the gardens. The height of the mount is truly awesome from below.
Once we had explored, all that we could, we treated ourselves to coffee's and pasty's for lunch, before going to find the ferry. As you can see from below, there was no longer any sight of the causeway, and the ferryman confidently advised me that is now sat 8-10 feet below us in the boat!
