|St. Michael's Mount, Marazion, Cornwall|
We were in the Marazion and Mounts Bay area yesterday. The main attraction, in my opinion, being St. Michael's Mount. I find it very magical. Unfortunately it isn't open during the winter months so had to admire from afar.
There are numerous stories linked to St. Michael's Mount such as :
(1) It is said that the Archangel Michael appeared before local fisherman on the mount in the 5th century.
(2) Prior to the 6th century the island was once the home of an eighteen feet tall giant named Cormoran. He lived in a cave with treasures he accumulated by terrorising the local towns and villages.
(3) Sea-lore claims that Archangel Michael sat in a great stone chair at the top of the mount protecting England.

We continued along the beach until we reached Coast Path leading to Penzance.
The beach cafe was closed - but we had a very pleasant day, and walked a fair distance.
All being well I'll return to St.Michael's Mount in the main season to snap a few photos - when the island is open for visitors.
