Favorite thing: As the saying goes, it's not all beer and skittles. This ever-so-dramatic shot of a wave actually breaking OVER the walls and into the harbour was taken in October 2004. The photo I have is actually of a photo that hangs in the Post Office, one of several taken that day but, to my mind, the most dramatic.
The second pic is of the general area where the wave was breaking over, with views back to Marazion.

Fondest memory: It was such a neat thing, sitting in our launch being guided by a man dressed up looking like someone who'd been working around the sea most of his life. We were sat next to a Tasmanian couple and the wife had a history of seasickness. How fortunate for her that it's only a short journey back to Marazion. I mean, not to worry anyway because, if the worst came to the worst, she could have waited till nightfall when the tide was out and walked back.
