Miniature lighthouse overlooks Mevagissey's harbor from a stout stone jetty. Skilled fishermen from here took so many pilchard that the village long ago acquired the nickname, "Fishygissey." Ropes moor rowboats that have no place to go until the tide comes in; fishing smacks and yachts rest in shallow water. Windows of Mevagissey's hillside homes stare down at the stranded fleet.
