The King Harry Ferry which is at the bottom of Trelissick Gardens leaving at the far side.

The King Harry Ferry mid stream. The river is deep here. Note the ferry is driven by chains.

St Michaels Mount in the evening. The sailing club were out racing!

The wreck of the Mulheim a few yards from Lands End. Not much of it left now!

Misty conditions and low tide at Nanjizal with a strongish wind kicking up the waves.

St Michaels Mount at low tide.

The dairy on St Michaels Mount.

The front of the House.

Looking down from the roof of the House at the harbour. The tide has come in but the causeway is just visible underwater on the right hand side.

The amphibous vehicle parked in the harbour. It looks small here but look at the depth readings near the front wheel. The wheels are 1.4 metres high!

The little trolley down by the harbour used to haul things up through a tunnel to the house. You can see the tracks coming out onto the Quay near the ticket office.
