Cornwall - day 1 - Penzance, St Michael's Mount

breakfast on the Riviera Express
the blue Abbey hotel
Jubilee Pool
causeway to the Mount
St Michael's Mount castle
on the roof
transport to the island
in limbo on the sleeper train, looking down on the world - charmed by early morning Penzance - pointed to our hotel, The Abbey - our suite is ready and breakfast is laid - "I'll have egg... sausage... mushroom... And do you have a tah-may-to?" - the daily swimming group by the white wall - plastic covered hills - perfectly shaped St Michael's Mount - not much to see until the tour starts - a mummified cat from Egypt, a Gainsborough, a Shogun mask with a feather moustache - the causeway covers over again
