English postcard #4

St. Michael's Mount, Cornwall

We were blessed with favorable tides and sunny skies on our visit to St. Michael's Mount, an island that is connected to the mainland by a causeway that is covered by the Atlantic Ocean at high tide.  We crossed when the tide was about at its lowest, enjoyed a tour of the castle on the mount, and crossed back less than two hours later before the causeway was closed to foot traffic.


  1. So beautiful! I've been enjoying these English Postcard posts! :) As well as the one we got in the mail!

    Is this where they filmed part of The Scarlet Pimpernel?

  2. I'm glad you enjoy these, Tara. IMDB indicates The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982) was filmed at Lindisfarne Castle (unfortunately we didn't visit there).
