St Michael's Mount

What a lovely day again! The weather is being so kind to us this week.
We went to St Michael's Mount today. You can walk to it across a causeway which is very interesting.
Once you get there, it has a gift shop to browse, a cafe to sit and enjoy the views with a drink and a scone with clotted cream and jam (yum!).
We went up to the castle, but there were so many visitors we decided against going inside and instead we sat on the grassy cliff looking out over the beautiful sea and had our picnic!
Later on this afternoon, we have been down to the beach and I watched my family from my vantage point surfing the waves - I might add, I'm no swimmer!
I got some lovely photos of a flock of sandpipers though! At least I think they're sandpipers - I'm still not sure.
