Holiday Thursday

Today we visited Helston before we went anywhere else.

Being the best start to the day of the whole week, so far, we took a picnic with us. Helston is a reasonable size for a Cornish town and makes quite a pleasant visit. We wandered around, had a cup of coffee, made some useful purchases.

We moved on to Marazion where we stopped for a half hour , it’s a quaint little place with the added attraction of being on Mounts Bay where St Michael’s Mount  is situated a little off shore. It’s connected by a causeway at low tide and one can walk across on the old stone causeway to the island. I walked quickly across and back as we were limited to a half hour free parking and on a previous occasion several years ago I took my daughter over by boat and took the complete tour of the property.

From Marazion went  into Penzance. We split up and I had quick tour of the town looking for used bookshops or antique shops which sell books. At the two main shops I drew a blank, as I often do, but in an arcade I found a outlet selling books where after some haggling I bought three old volumes (190+ years old ) in rather worse for wear condition, which hopefully will be interesting when tidied up.

We left Penzance and stopped again at Marazion across from the Mount. The tide was in and there was no sign of the causeway at all. We made coffee on our camping stove, then cooked some salmon to have with our salad, we enjoyed a very nice meal alfresco before going back to the caravan.

As I write this I am reminded  that perseverance is needed when seeking a treasure or something that is lost. I am reminded also of the deliverance of Israel through the Red Sea. God provided a way of escape upon dry land while the Red Sea returned upon the Egyptians. The Lord Jesus on the shore the Sea of Tiberias said to his disciples “Come and dine”  and fed them with bread and fish cooked on a fire.

Seek and you shall find, the Lord shall deliver you, so that you can sit down with Jesus and dine with Him on the Shores of Eternity.
