A Taste of Mevagissey, Cornwall


It's interesting how the mood of of a place can alter as the weather changes.



Today's photos are  of the fishing village of Mevagissey.


I always enjoy a stroll by the harbour.


This gentleman seemed to be equipped for whatever the weather.


A pleasant place to rest and enjoy the view. As William Henry Davies wrote: 
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.


Moving on 


Lighthouses are always interesting. This one is only about 26 feet tall but the light can be seen for around twelve  nautical miles. 


How different everything looks as the fishing boats huddle together.




Blue sky and coloured boats to lift the spirits.





And so to the end of this post. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.
All good wishes ~ Mike.

  1. I was over at my mother's place yesterday and she was watching the Australian version of the quiz show 'The Chase' on TV and one of the questions was " which country is the Lost Gardens of Heligan in?" and I thought of you and your blog Mike, for which I probably wouldn't have known the answer to if I hadn't have read your previous posts over the past weeks:-)
    And a nice walk you have presented here in Mevagissey, too.
    I'm becoming hooked on your posts ... pardon the fishing line pun;-)

    1. Glad to read that you were able to answer that Heligan question - what a small world we live in. Mevagissey and Heligan are both near to where we live.Always good to hear from you, best wishes.

  3. Hello David, glad the photos stirred a few good memories for you. Mevagissey is quite near Helligan Gardens, but I guess it wouldn't have been opened when you visited the area.

  4. It’s no secret that I love a harbor full of colorful boats and reflections on a beautiful day! These photos are lovely all around. I’ve been curious about the village name and finally have looked it up to learn its origin. Interesting choice of names to combine into one! I especially like seeing the jumble of houses stacked on the hillside. I enjoyed this post a great deal, Mike. Best wishes from Ann.
