The island is joined to the mainland by a causeway which is revealed at low tide. When the tide is high there are regular fishing boats ferrying people across. We caught ours from the rocks to the left of the picture
I didn't take many photos as we went round the castle bit, I loved this little indoor garden though
Looking down from the top of the walls we could see the gardens were open. I've previously only been to Cornwall during the Summer holidays and the gardens are closed for a lot of the time to prevent them getting damaged by too many people wandering around
You can see the causeway starting to be revealed, some people were already wading across
Time to visit the gardens, I'll let the photos speak for themselves...
^a couple of weeds ;-)
I think I took more photos in those gardens than any other place on the holiday. I hope you enjoyed seeing them, just looking at them as I chose which ones to share took me back to that day. Such a wonderful place to visit.
Thank you for visiting with me, I'll have some knitting posts to share with you tomorrow. I'm enjoying working on my rainbow socks again at the moment although Mr Soaring Sheep's sweater has seen a lot of knitting too :-)
