Land’s End is mainland Britain’s most south-westerly point. It’s not too far from St. Michael’s Mount, about a half hour drive. It’s surprisingly stuffed with tourists & tour buses but still a neat visit when you get past the shops and off the beaten path.

We even found… what’s that?
View enlarged – The RMS Mülheim, a German cargo ship transporting 2,200 tonnes of scrap car plastic, wrecked at Land’s End on March 22, 2003. On investigation, it was discovered that the chief officer—who had been on watch at the time—had caught his trousers in the lever of his chair when trying to get up, causing him to fall and rendering him unconscious. By the time he regained consciousness, RMS Mülheim was already bearing down on the shoreline.
