We had a very foggy day in St Ives, and we know from experience that if you travel just 6 miles to the opposite coast, you can often find a completely different day. And so we found ourselves at St Michael's Mount in Marazion.
It is always mystical and magical and never fails to impress - no matter how many times we have visited (and we've lost count now).
The island is joined to the mainland by a causeway that can be walked at low tide.
But we had to cross by boat as the tide was in when we arrived.
The house is full of history and has so much to see as you wander around.
But the most spectacular thing about the Mount (in my opinion) is the spectacular garden around the back - facing out to sea.
Because this sits in the gulf stream, so many exotic and tropical plants grow clinging to this granite rock.
We loved our trip across to Marazion - the fog had still not lifted when we got back to St Ives.
And the National Trust cafe's on the Island are great too!
