St. Michael's Mount photos

At last I have a computer of my own again after losing mine and having to use my husband's for two months. (He never complained once!) Anyhow, that means I now have access to my photo programme again, despite having lost many precious photos in the crash. (It's been a lesson to me, believe me.) So, I thought I'd post some photos I took of St. Michael's Mount while we were in Cornwall, on holiday, in October. They're not very seasonal because, as you can see, the weather was glorious! It was quite a climb to the top and there are warnings at the bottom against attempting it if you have health problems. We were borderline (Hubby has a heart condition) but we risked it and were glad we did. I was a teenager when I last climbed to the top of The Mount so the views took my breath away as though new to me.

















I haven't put any family photos up as I'm a little wary of it but anyone wishing to see a family one drop me an e.mail (I think my address is on my user info) and I'll pop it along.

deslily and Tara: glad you like the photos. The cobbled path is wonderful isn't it? The property is owned by the National Trust and they've done a lot restoration work since I was last there. And done a wonderful job on it too.

Nan, if you ever come back to England I'll personally take you on a proper tour of St. Michael's Mount. :-)

I have always adored St Michael's Mount. There is something so fairytale about it

I agree, Elaine, there is a magical, fairytale atmosphere to The Mount. And to people from Penzance, like myself, it's always the first sign that you're home as you travel down the A30.
