    I know what you mean about wanting to watch the sea all day. It's mesmerising. Must return here, (out of season) it's probably 40 years since my last visit. Wonderful pics.

    Wonderful page, Sandy. My family lived here during the War, but I only remember it from 1949!!. I haven't tasted a real Pasty for years. Most are not very original these days.

    Beautiful harbour colored houses and the light house with a bit of ray of light is stunning! Like the opening pix, Sandy:-)

    What a picturesque village! I would love to try the Cornish Pasties! Yummie! Wonderful coastline, I can just picture me standing there with the salty sea breeze blowing in my face, watching the waves and the lighthouse in the distance.

    Mevegissey looks so picturesque! I love small towns like this! It must be great to eat some fish and chips and talk with some of the old salts of the sea!
