St. Michaels Mount

St. Michael's Mount

St. Michael's Mount is a rocky island five miles south of Penzance in Cornwall. It is an 11th century stone Benedictine priory and a royal
fortress from 1194. Surmounted by an fortress-like abbey dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel, this atmospheric sacred site
has much in common with its namesake across the channel, Mont-St-Michel in France. It is considered to be the jewel in
Cornwall's crown.

Nice shot! This takes me back, remembering people having to wade back
along the path as the tide came in. Lovely.
