The weather forecast was dull and misty with some rain and drizzle - again! We still decided to get some fresh air and headed for Mevagissey. Always a favourite place to walk and visit .
As you will see from the photos, there were many boats in the harbour, haven't seen so many for quite a while
We wandered along the sea wall, hefty rocks hide this property
More rocks below the sea wall as we looked out to sea.
We went as far as possible on this side of the harbour, until we could see the small lighthouse. It is only 26 feet tall, but the light can be seen for about twelve nautical miles.
Two men were fishing but hadn't been lucky so far.
As the sea wall was damp underfoot the colour of the stones shone through.
We headed uphill! This leads to the coastal path and also passes some of the village cottages.
There was a view of the harbour from the pathway.
We passed several old cottages.
The 'Sea Oss' made me smile.
The old cottages are great but, unfortunately, many are now holiday homes, too expensive for the young people of the village to purchase.
Down now to the level of the harbour and we walk round the opposite side of the harbour.
There's a beach! Only very small though and can disappear as the tide hightens.
Looking across to the other side of the harbour where we walked first.
The harbour cat was sitting comfortably ...
... while he watched the various birds at play.
On high are some expensive apartments with views over the complete harbour
We retraced our footsteps.
There was a pleasant shine on the water.
All in all the weather was much better than forecasted.
A final view of the inner harbour and the many boats cuddling up closely.
P.S. Back in 1885 Mevagissey landed 255,000 hundredweight of fish. This is/was the greatest quantity of any port in the west.
Thanks for visiting my blog, hope to see you again soon. All good wishes ~ Mike.
