St Michael’s Mount and It’s Disappearing Path

We’re off the see the Wizard…

The island and its parish is surrounded by many myths and is drenched in history, possibly being as old as from 8th to 11th century. It is supposedly the site where the legendary King Arthur fought a local giant, and also where Joseph of Arimethea (uncle of Jesus) came to visit as a trade merchant.

On the main Island, there’s a lovely chapel, you can see a huge map of Cornwall painted on the house inside

The tides start to come in…

And begins to cover the path completely (you should have seen all of us striding down the path squealing at the freezing cold water splashing over our ankles and soaking our legs – made worse by the fact that we were at the back of the group!). All shoes were swiftly moved as they were rendered redundant and soggy.

And here is the path completely covered by the path, making the only way across possible by boat or um…swimming.
