Mousehole ...

I bet you thought I'd shown you all my holiday snaps, but here are a few more!
The picturesque village of Mousehole always has something of interest to see.
A colourful souvenir in one of the many quaint shops.
The harbour at a very low tide.
Keigwin Manor was originally a 16th century manor house. This is the only building to survive after Mousehole was destroyed in 1595 by the Spaniard Carlos de Amesquita when he raided Mounts Bay.
Lots of interesting little lanes leading to quaint cottages.
Lots of fishing boats in the harbour waiting for the incoming tide.
A fascinating village to visit if you are ever in West Cornwall.

I just love Mousehole. We havent been for years, but now we are in SOmerset, Cornwall is suddenly not that far away.
I particularly liked the photo of the little boat.
