A lingering look at the windows of ‘St Michaels’ Mount’.

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.
