To start, the walk was about 4 ½ miles along the glorious Cornwall coast:
|Lovely little tumbledown hut above Bessy's cove|
|The variety and abundance of flowers growing along the cliffs was fantastic. These are bluebells and thrift|
|Cudden Point again.|
|St Michael's Mount from Cudden Point|
|And now a little closer|
We arrived in Marazion around midday and promptly tucked into one of the best Cornish Pasty's I've ever tasted. It was high tide, so we found our way to the little quay to get a boat across the causeway, £2 each and it only took a couple of minutes.
Once on the island, there are a lot of steps to get up to the castle. It's an amazing place, and we really enjoyed our visit.
It started as a monastery in the 12th century, and since then has constantly been added to. It's still lived in too apparently. It was good to get out on the top and see the surrounding views. There's also a little church and some fabulous gardens, if gardening is what you like.

Peter likes beer. I like coffee n cake. Luckily the onsite cafe sells all three, and lots more.
So I think the bus journey took a little longer than normal. But that was OK, we weren't in a hurry, we've more more time in Cornwall tomorrow.
