Tuesday - part 2 - Around Mount's Bay to Mousehole

 Having put off a visit to Mousehole until most of the visitors had gone, we managed to get into the car park with this wonderful view of the other side of St Michael's Mount showing the old original Monastery which was then added to in later times
It was a stunningly clear day with super views over to The Lizard - here you can see the Lighthouse on Lizard Point 
Goonhilly satellite dishes as well as the much more recent Wind Farm
Porthleven
I think that this is Mullion
and looking over to home right below the Rosudgeon Water Tower
We walked up Raginnis Hill and out to the coastal footpath with the sun turning changing colour as it begun to set
Not something you see often here in West Cornwall - the frozen pond up at Porth Enys House
 Love the trees over this side of the bay
See a wall and they'll insist on looking over it
Fisheries Protection vessel St Piran heading back to Newlyn
James Roberts on SS84 Three Jays heading back to Newlyn
Merlin doing some sterling work holding a Christmas Tree steady
The wooden Baulks that help protect the harbour are still looking in good shape as they haven't had as much stormy weather to cope with as last year
We had a super piece of Lemon Drizzle cake and cup of tea and by then the lights were on




My favourite - just love the whale
Partridge in a pear tree

Loved the sky in this shot
Our cameras taking different versions

Think this was a panorama





Wonderful scene 
We then went into The Ship Inn and had fish & chips and by the time we came out the tide was now well in 

The Celtic Cross out on St Clement's Isle between two Christmas trees. Super to see that it is still looking so good as it has really suffered in past years due to storms

Almost missed the Dolphin
and off home we went !

    1. So pleased you enjoyed them - we had been putting off the visit as we'd kept hearing how busy it was. Such a wonderful day - but as you know still rather cold and even worse today. Happy New Year to you both - do hope you make it down here again soon. Sue & Jim

  2. Thanks for these great photos. I guess they will soon be taking down the lights.
    Amazing to be able to see places across the other side of the bay over a calm sea.

    1. Was an amazing day - so clear and bright, - just the opposite today when it's been cold and grey. The Christmas and New Year visitors went home happy as the weather had been pretty good for the time of year. The Mousehole lights switch off 7th January - then begins the long schedule of removal and storage until next year. Sue
