A Chilly Short Walk Around the Harbour at Mevagissey

We were in Mevagissey and, my gosh, it was cold. The tide was out and the boats were all higgledy-piggledy. Luckily the boat below had supports and stayed upright.

One good thing about the chill in the air was that there were very few people about. In the holiday seasons it is heaving with visitors.

Next is looking across to the cottages on the harbour side.

As we walked around the harbour the sky changed to varying shades of blue. The
 lighthouse remained silent.

The sea soon started to fill the harbours and a fishing boat was floating in the outer harbour.

Looking across from the outer harbour now and all is peaceful.

I snapped the photos as we walked.

The sea looked bright for a while but changed near the lighthouse.

Here's the lighthouse close up.

The inner harbour gradually filled with water.

More boats - but the weather was still very cold. We made our way home. I always enjoy visiting Mevagissey whatever the weather.

Many thanks for visiting my blog
All good wishes,


  1. Hi Mike, I've really enjoyed this trip around Mevagissey. I prefer habours and beaches at low tide, the jaunty angles of the boats and their mooring ropes offer far more interest.
    Lovely photo,s, I've enjoyed seeing the varied types of boats, so colourful too. David.

    1. Many thanks David. It had been a while since we last visited Mevagissey - always something to see of interest and was enjoyable as there were very few other people about - other than a few locals doing bits to their boats. Good wishes.

  2. I’m so glad you braved the cold to get these great photos of the town without the crowds. I always love seeing your harbor shots and all the boats, even in winter! Happy New Year and very best wishes to you for 2024. Ann

  3. Lovely to hear from you Ann, trust all is well. Hope you have a happy2024. How quickly time passes. I must be getting old! Best wishes.

    1. I suppose we’re all getting old, but let’s just continue to pretend that we are not and enjoy each moment!

    2. I agree entirely ~ we have to try to enjoy every day. There's lots of goodness in the world.

  4. How very pretty and colourful it is in Mevagissey, Mike. That's something to feast your eyes on and be joyful for. No one can take away the pleasure of beautiful scenery and a delightful array of boats.

    1. Yes there is much to be joyful for as William Henry Davies points out in his poem "we have no time to stand and stare".
