The walks

After our visit we look for a stop for the night, Mevagissey car park wanted £8.00 for the night just to park, so we travel on and  arrived at Rame right at the top of a steep hill, with a Coast guard station  manned by volunteers, what an interesting place, they pointed out the vessels on the sea and their details,  Eddystone lighthouse and its history.

Then a lovely walk to the chapel which was first licensed for Mass in 1397 and probably built just before that. We watched the sunset, the wild ponies and looked at the wonderful scenery. Thank you Mevagissey car park for being expensive.

Tomorrow back to Yelverton.
