A Perfect Chilly Winter's Day in Mevagissey, Cornwall - 12 Photos


It was a very chilly winter's day (6th Feb). We thought a stroll around Mevagissey, despite the cold, was in order. It proved to be a good choice as the sky and sea were lovely shades of blue. 

We walked around the harbour to the small lighthouse.


As we wandered along the outer wall we could see a man fishing in the distance.


When we reached the man he hadn't been very lucky with his fishing, but what a view he had as a consolation


Across the water was the Harbour Office. 


The water in the inner harbour looked polished and shining in the winter sunshine.


There were lots of boats at the far side of the harbour ...


... all jumbled together.


Fishing paraphernalia were stacked neatly on the harbourside.


As we were leaving a small fishing boat was entering the harbour.


Below, the harbour wall with not another person in sight.


Finally the view looking east from the harbour wall, all in all very pleasant.

    1. Thank you. Today is another perfect day in Cornwall, again the sun is shining with blue sky. Must admit I like Cornwall in early Spring before the holiday makers arrive. All good wishes, take care ~ Mike.

    1. Thanks Lulu. I shouldn't think much has changed with Mevagissey over the years. Only a few people about while I was there but, of course, it gets very busy in the summer season. Hope you have been enjoying the sunshine.
      Good wishes ~ Mike.
