A Day Out To – Marazion, Cornwall

At the end of last week Stu and I both had a couple of days off work and decided to make the most of the nice weather with some days out. As it’s so sunny at the moment; we hopped in the car for a drive to Marazion for some much-needed time by the sea.

We enjoyed the sunshine so much, it seemed only appropriate to take some photos to share…

A day out to...

Marazion is Cornwall’s oldest town, located on the south coast, at Mount’s Bay, not far from Penzance. A popular holiday destination, and home to National Trust managed, St Michael’s Mount.

The beach is of course a great place for everyone in summer time, and is also popular for water sports.

Our Visit to Marazion

It was such a lovely hot day, and we made no plans, just wandering. The joy of this, going off the beaten path, just enjoying exploring, like discovering a sweet little gallery and shop; Out of the Blue, which I just HAD to have a look around.

Full of nautical and beach themed art and gifts, it’s such a cool little gallery to have a look around, and of course to buy something to take home too!

There was so much I loved! Even the surroundings themselves, as one of the oldest buildings in Marazion, complete with rope ladders on the ceilings, and wooden chests! So much to love! Also they have a website – which you can check out HERE!!

I got chatting to Julia aka “Joo from the blue” and even purchased a little glass hanging boat for myself! It goes with my nautical theme in the bathroom at home, and it’s especially fitting as I have some hanging glass fish already!

If that wasn’t enough, we also visited Marazion’s local little museum, and enjoyed a look around there (full of local curiosities, and history) and to finish up we had an ice cream!!

Hope you had a great weekend and have been enjoying the recent warm weather*! I’ll be back soon with some more crafty posts!

(*For those of you not in the UK, if you’re anywhere cold, I hope you enjoyed this little spot of sunshine!)

  1. Marazion was freezing cold when I was there in spring last year. Brrr. Ruined my shoes in the rain and sand and am still surprised I didn’t catch a cold. But being by the sea was lovely and St Michael’s Mount is well worth a visit. Good to see you had sunshine!
