Walking The Roseland Peninsular And Jesus Visiting Cornwall

St Mawes Castle, Cornwall

We went walking on the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall. The name comes from the Cornish word Ros meaning promontory, rather than from the flower.

We stopped off at St Mawes castle, built in the time of King Henry VIII to protect the Cornish and English coast. We continued walking alongside the River Fal - a lovely day with blue skies of varying shades.

We also looked in on my favourite church at St. Just. This is where it is said that Jesus may have visited as a young man - see:
