St. Michaels Mount

After our visit to the most westerly point of England, we started heading eastwards. Next stop was St Michael’s Mount, a small tidal island in Mount’s Bay. The island is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water. We started off with a walk along the beach and then proceeded to stroll across the granite causeway. On the island there is a medieval church and castle, and it is home to a small community. Inside the castle the kids partook in a quiz where they had to search for a giant’s stone heart, the armour of a samurai warrior, and a mummified cat, amongst other things. The castle was well preserved with great views of the sea and countryside. We made it back to shore before the tide came back in and continued on to our next destination.
