sunday was no easy strolling. we drove a few miles down the coast and hopped onto a boat onto St Michaels Mount
- which can be walked to when the tide is out. seeing as the tide would be in for some time we jumped on one of many boats which operated like taxis dropping us to and fro.
not going to lie i felt a little sea sick on the rocky waves.
even though the rain still wasn't showing any sign of easing up the views from the bottom of the hill once on St Michaels Mount were already spectacular. you see the whole coast all the way from Newlyn right round to Helston.
we hiked up the pilgram's steps
passed the giant's well and heart
right to the top where the castle stood, overlooking the sea.
if you look to the right you can see the path that leads up to the mountain which is available to use in low tide.
found them in the mans room with all the weapons and armour, boys will be boys.
but of course i can't go all the way to cornwall and not buy some homemade fudge!
we sure did work up and appetite trekking up and down that island so we stopped at a local restaurant The Godolphin Arms
which has a spectacular view of the island and serves good grub too. i can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the summer. it was a perfect way to end our last full day in Cornwall.
