Today's post follows on from my previous Mevagissey post. The weather was changeable but, thanks to crossing my fingers, it didn't rain.
On the last visit we went along the east side of the harbours, so today it's the western side. Starting off where the fishermen unload their catch.
There is a small stall selling fresh fish. When no one else was about my wife bought herself some mackerel fresh from the boat. (Being vegetarian I don't eat fish.)
If you read my previous Mevagissey post below is the entrance to the inner harbour.
Here we are looking east showing the jumble of cottages and houses on the far hillside.
A young gull was enjoying the view...
... as was the family perched on the rocks.
The wall dividing the inner harbour from the outer harbour.
Eventually we reach the small lighthouse built in 1896.
The sky started to turn blue so a closer view of the lighthouse.
You can also get to the harbour by walking down the many steps from the road. It obviously needs a lot more puff if you go up the steps.
Looking from the breakwater, on which the lighthouse is situated. The blue sky didn't last for long.
I noticed this happy family looking out to sea.
Finally we have a photo of the road behind Mevagissey harbour with the Ship Inn on the right. This road will take you to Portmellon - see my post: Portmellon, Cornwall - a Sandy Cove When the Tide is Out
