UK Trip Day 11: St. Michael's Mount and Minack Theatre

This cloudy day took us to St. Michael's Mount, an extraordinary castle settlement (still a functioning residence) on a little island across from the town of Marazion. We took a boat to get to it in the morning, and the receding tide later uncovered the stone causeway that allowed us to walk back.

After some (more) scones and clotted cream, we drove to Porthcurno for some more spectacular cliff side views and to learn about the eccentric and fascinating story of Rowena Cade and her lifework, the Minack Theatre (video).
