It was quite early on a bright Saturday morning at the end of March and Mevagissey harbour was looking very attractive. The tide was out and the boats just lay there, waiting for the water to come and release them.
We started by walking along the east wharf, past the very sheltered inner harbour, stopping to look back towards the town. There is a little museum here but it wasn’t open, sadly.
Walking on we went right to the end of the breakwater which forms part of the outer harbour and stood for a while watching the waves.
Looking across we could see the other side of the harbour and decided to retrace our steps and then walk along the west wharf to the lighthouse which marks the harbour entrance.
On our way to the lighthouse we had spotted a sign for the coastal path and decided to go up the steps and then loop round and back into town through the houses. From the top we had great views of the harbour and buildings.
Walking down through the narrow streets we decided that a warming coffee was needed to finish off our little outing and there was no shortage of choices of cafes around the harbour from which to choose.
I’m linking this with Jo’s Monday Walk, where you will find lots of other lovely walks.
