I have just returned from a five-day visit to Cornwall, and one of the many historic places I really enjoyed, was St Michael’s Mount, the most famous of Cornwall’s landmarks. This majestic castle is built high on a granite crag, and dates back to the 14th century. When I have more time, I’ll do a post with more photos, but for now here are just a few of the wonderful windows which look out across Mounts Bay.
Every window has a magnificent view.
I could imagine myself sitting on this window seat for hours, reading a book or just staring out to sea.
Each window had a special charm of its own.
Just take a look at this ornate window fastener. So beautiful.
This one just had a plain pane of glass, but the gorgeous view certainly made up for that.
It’s hard to pick a favourite, but I really loved this one.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my lingering look at windows. To see more, click here to visit Dawn’s latest post.
I’m more accustomed to seeing pictures of exotic sunny places in your posts so it is uncanny to see so much of my part of the world in your pictures
I just came back to this post on my old blog to look at the photos, and saw that I hadn’t answered your comment. Thanks, Dallas. I really enjoyed my visit to Cornwall.
This is a paperback book.
Very pleasant, the title said:
Head up particularly comforting.
Patience is the sister of hope and the mother of serenity.
Starlight is reflected only in a quiet pond.
Sincerely Andrea and many hugs.
Thanks, Andrea. 🙂
I think I could get used to a window seat like that AD – gorgeous!
Such beautiful old windows. Thanks for taking us on this mini tour Sylvia. 🙂
Thanks, LuAnn. It’s such a beautiful castle. I could have just moved in. 🙂
Oh, ad! I love all of these! How much fun you must be having. You go, girl!
Thanks, Gemma. I will. 🙂
Gorgeous old windows 🙂
Thanks, Marianne. It’s such beautiful place to visit. 🙂
What views! I still haven’t been to Cornwall but you’ve convinced me to go.
It really is a ‘must see’, TBM. 🙂
Thank you, Stefan. 🙂
WOW! Amazing place and photographs. Thanks and Love, nia
Thanks so much, Nia. Have a great weekend. xx
Lovely photos AD 🙂
Thanks, Tandy. 🙂
Incredible!!!! Love the windows and yes…it’s fun to imagine sitting and reading and looking out to sea….Love it.
Thanks, Suzanne. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
I always wanted to go to St Michaels Mount, Ad. Absolutely love your windows. 🙂
When are you off to the Rhine? A full week’s cruise? Eeeh, lass- it’s all go!
Thanks, Jo. We leave tomorrow and stay in a hotel near Heathrow, as we have an early flight on Sunday. Yes, never a dull moment. 🙂
These are beautiful pictures! I’m going to be in Cornwall next month so I’m very interested in this post… 🙂
Thanks, Meg. You really must go over the causeway to St Michael’s Mount. Cornwall s an amazing place, and we visited so many interesting places there. 🙂
A very spiritual place, but not if you have to clean those windows 😉
Very true, Ralph. I would be down on my knees, begging not to have to clean them. 🙂
Kneeling inside or outside the windows at the time ?? 😉
A very nice collection! Imagine all of the hours that have been spent staring out, through those panes, since the building was erected in the 14th century. I’d love to be able to add a few of my own. 😉
Thanks so much, John. Yes, if those windows could talk, they would tell a few interesting tales. 🙂
Rich with history and charm. Lovely windows looking out over peaceful views. I’ll go for the window seat…with a nice plump cushion.
Oh yes, I had already decided that a plump cushion would be very desirable. 🙂
I’d definitely go for dreamy hours spent in that window seat! Such fantastic details for windows… who’d of thought? Great images.
Thanks so much, Gunta. i had fun there. 🙂
Amazing views! Wonderful Sylvia!
Thanks so much, Phil. 🙂
I have one word for you with these windows… WOW!!!
Thanks so much, Cee. 🙂
I would join you at that lovely bay window, reading and looking out at the scenery.
It does look inviting, Colline. I think we would do more chatting than reading. 🙂
That is true 🙂
It’s years since I went there, beautiful isn’t it?
Yes, it was breathtaking, Gilly. I think I could happily live there. 🙂
The Atlantic looks almost blue enough to be the Med.
Thanks so much, Ark. 🙂
Thanks, Nicole. 🙂
That is one awesome window seat. 🙂 I’ve always wanted one of my own.
Yes, and the view is to die for. 🙂
Lovely look out some windows with amazing views. I love the last one too!
Thanks so much, Cathy. 🙂
Great photos from a wonderful place. 🙂
I quite enjoyed the interesting facts about butlers I learned there (like how they were paid more if they were taller!). Did you read the bit about Queen Victoria paying a visit? The family were out and missed her!
I did a few posts on St Michael’s Mount a while ago. I was going to add some links as I thought you might be interested. But then I noticed that you’d already commented on them! 🙂
Thanks, Lance. Just imagine being out when the Queen comes to visit! 😆
Beautiful windows, AD. I love the scale! Could have used one like that to teach equations to my gr 8’s 😉
Thanks, Pussycat. It is a very splendid scale indeed. 🙂
Ja też chcę wyglądać z okien na morze.
Dziękuję i pozdrawiam
Absolutely stunning windows and shots AD. Love it. 😀 *hugs*
Thanks so much, Sonel. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂 Hugs to you too.
They are charming and well thought out window designs. Thank you for sharing.
I’m so glad you enjoyed these. 🙂
love those old windows, they have so much charm and character 🙂
Thanks so much, Christine. 🙂
