The OH took another day off today, that's Friday AND Monday, I guess this is our summer holiday then. People think when you are self employed you can take as much time off as you want. The reality is very different. For many years we just didn't have holidays, but now he does take a day off here and there and every few years we have a proper holiday.
We decided that we would do the staycation thing and go on a trip. It was so nice at Marazion yesterday and as OH hasn't been there for ages we headed that way. I did suggest using the back roads, but......... So after queuing on the bypass for ages, and finding somewhere to park we treated ourselves to lunch - well we are on holiday.
My parents used to bring me here when I was little. The swimming for little ones is ideal, and then I would help my dad dig for worms to take fishing. He was a sea angler which involved climbing down the cliffs and standing on a rock for hours. As you can imagine, when he took me with him as a child I would get bored very quickly and with in half an hour would be tucking into the sandwiches and asking if it was time to go home yet. I also hated seeing him hitting the fish on the head to kill them, and as for the gutting when we got home! No wonder I'm now a vegetarian.
After lunch we decided to walk across the causeway towards the mount. It is a lovely walk but you do have to time it right for the tides. The tide was coming in as we set off, we were not actually going all the way as we have been across before and didn't want to catch the boat back. We had one memorable trip back on the boat when our youngest was a toddler. He screamed all the way.
As you can see I didn't have the most appropriate shoes for paddling. Well it was raining when we left home so we didn't think we would be walking on the beach.
At this stage we decided to turn back
The tide comes in very quickly and often catches people unaware
We were back on the beach but there were still people attempting to get across including someone with a buggy!
The causeway is rapidly disappearing
I hope that dog can swim
The easier option when the tide is coming in.
I hope you enjoyed the walk across the causeway,
