Favorite thing: There are inner and outer harbours to the little fishing village of Mevagisey.
The inner harbour dates back to 1774, and the outer harbour to 1888. Unfortunately the outer harbour walls were washed away in the storms of the great blizzard in March 1891 but were rebuilt and completed in 1897.

Fondest memory: I loved this view from the outer harbour of the lighthouse. It was getting a bit stormy looking out at sea but the light was still playing on the waves and if it wasn't so cold I could have watched the waves for hours!
