Marazion + St Michael's Mount


I want to live in on St Michael's Mount.
During our holiday in Cornwall last month, we decided to take a trip to Marazion to have a wander around the town and mooch about in the shops. When we arrived, the tide was really far out, and in seeing St Michael's Mount we spontaneously decided to go over to the island. Oh my it was beautiful! For those of you who have never heard of it, St Michael's Mount is a small tidal island linked to the town of Marazion via a man-made cobbled causeway. This causeway becomes acessible during low-mid tide, which is what allowed us to be able to walk across to the Mount. The small island has a Castle at the top, a Chapel, and a few houses dotted around, all of which I believe is now managed by the National Trust. You can follow the pathways laid out for tourists all the way round the island and up to the castle, however, due to time restraints we only had a brief look around the forefront of the island where there are gift shops, and a small museum. Having visited once, though, I am eager to return and explore the rest of the island. 

Marazion is also a place I look forward to going back to, as it had a lovely atmosphere, with many traditionally Cornish craft shops, and lots of cute cafes. We made a particularly good discovery of a restaurant called the 'Godolphin' which did the most amazing Gluten Free chips, and had a beautiful view of Mount's Bay. We enjoyed our stop there on the first trip so much that we went back again on one of our final evenings in Cornwall, and there was something really special about walking across Mount's Bay at dusk. 
I felt so at peace in Cornwall, and can't really understand how it's been a month since I returned to working life in London?!
