Bournemouth - Dartmoor National Park - Marazion

May 24th 2015
This morning we set off down to Cornwall, specifically to St Michael's Mount which is linked to the mainland at Marazion by a causeway at low tide. When the tide is in visitors are taken across to the island by boat.

Happy Birthday, Bernie!
I hope you do make it out to St. Michael's Mount, which looks so like my beloved Le Mont-Saint-Michel in Normandy; it would be a proper birthday present! How lovely to get a recommendation from your lunch staff that led you over the moors--another b'day present, I suppose. Love the ponies, lambs and postbridge. Happy travels in your new year!

Mont St Michel is beautiful too!
Hi Tara, thank you for Bernie's birthday wishes. We caught the boat out to St Michael's Mount on the 25th and enjoyed our exploration of the castle and the amazing gardens. I think we visited Mont St Michel before we started blogging on this site. When we return home I'll have to try to remember to find our photos and post a couple here. Bernie's photos of Mont St Michel are pretty good ... even if I say so myself. We got up early and took some amazing early morning photos of the mont reflected in the tidal estuary. I looked up your blog the other day and you don't seem to have posted for a while. Are you still on your epic travels in South America or are you back in California at the moment? Cheers, Tracey.
