St Michaels Mount, Godrevey and Tehidy

Having checked the tide times for the causeway, and organising a hearty picnic for ourselves, we headed down to Marazion and the car park opposite the causeway.

We established that the tide was now low enough for us to be able to start walking across to St Michaels Mount.  Today was to be an exciting day for Karen, as she had always wanted to visit this lovely place, ever since her school trip to its twin, Mont St Michel, all those years ago.

We were very glad of our walking boots as we climbed the steep incline to the top, and half way up, the heat got to us, and Karen unzipped her trouser legs for the benefit of the shorts they left behind…. at this point, both Jannah-Beth and I were very envious in our heavy trousers and Jeans!

We had a good old mooch around the building atop the mount, and then made out way into the gardens, finding a quiet spot for us to eat our picnic in the sunshine.

Before leaving, we grabbed a cooling drink in the cafe, and then a quick mooch around the gardens shop, where Karen and Dave treated me to a lovely plant that I had been admiring as we had walked the gardens.

When we arrived we had spotted a boat trip around the island, and as the tide was now on its way back in, we decided that this would be fun. There is nothing better than a boat trip in the sunshine, so it was a lovely treat.

It was finally time to leave, and we decided to drive the coast road home, via Godrevey for a quick peek to see the seals.


There were only two or three seals  in the bay so we took a stroll and managed to get the obligatory timed photo of us all with the lighthouse behind us (Jamie would have been proud!)



From here, we went home for coffee and another slice of birthday cake, before taking Fred for a nice long walk in Tehidy, for being a good boy


He loved jogging alongside his big sister as she went on ahead.

What a fantastic day, but there is more to come tomorrow.
