After two days of heavy rain the weather at last seem to be better for a while so our last day in Cornwall saw us heading out to the small fishing village of Port Isaac. The village seems to be wedged in the cliff walls and is a base for lobster and crab fishing on this part of the coast. The village is also famous for being the film location for the series Doc Martin and as we walked through the village on narrow steep lanes we passed Doc’s “house”.
We joined the South West Coastal path towards Port Quinn an interesting steep up and down path passing several rocky coves along the way. We had intended to walk all the way to Port Quinn further up the coast but after a couple of hours we turned back as the path was very wet and slippery in places so hard walking. Tony had also twisted his knee on a previous walk and he didn’t want to do anymore damage.
When we had left the village on our walk the tide was out. By the time we returned it was well and truly in.
We had enjoyed our two weeks in Cornwall, and although we had not managed to visits all the highlights due to the weather, we had enjoyed our stay.
