One of my fave places in Cornwall, a couple of miles from Penzance. You pronounce it as one word; "Mowzall". It was the only place I found the Malty Mystery flavour of Roskilly's ice cream. (Vanilla with malt and Malteasers). Yum. We had fabulous fish and chips (and said yummy ice cream) on the harbour side there on the last day of our holiday.

I'm a regular lurker, but had to comment due to the ice cream.
We've just got back from a week in Cornwall, then we went over to the Isles of Scilly for a week. I had the pleasure of sampling Malty Mystery on Tresco, truly yummy!
Gorgeous pictures. What is it about the light in Cornwall? Everything looks fantastic.
This was only my 2nd trip to Cornwall, we didn't make it to Mousehole this time, we camped on Bodmin Moor so didn't get down to the Western tip until the day before we got the boat to Scilly... next time.

Mousehole's lovely, we went there once. Lovely big baguettes for lunch in a cafe on the harbour side.
And we were foolish enough to park our car on the pier bit, so had cold sweats and severe palpitations reversing it back off again :)
Nice pic of St Michael's mount in the distance there.

Celeste - I love Cornwall. I lived there for a bit, but it didn't work out. I must've put on 709lbs, though, eating all that ice cream, clotted cream and scones! I've never been to the Isles of Scilly, though. Is it nice there?

John- Hehehehe! We parked just outside the village on the road from Penzance where you can park (for free) along the cliff side and walked in. We walked back right along the seafront, which was lovely. I didn't fancy the tiny, treacherous roads along the harbour; the drive from Penzance was hairy enough!

So sorry, spelled "Jon" wrong there.
