We are lucky to live in a very beautiful part of the country. And yet we very rarely go out and explore. There always seems to be an urgent job that needs doing somewhere around the house or garden.
So this year we’ve decided we will try harder.
Come rain or shine.
For what a grey day it was yesterday. Not the best day for dramatic vistas, the low cloud was never far away. But even on the dullest day there is still plenty of colour to be found in Cornwall.
Port Isaac is a fishing village on the North Cornwall coast, built around a tiny cove and protected by a sea wall.
This is one of the oldest buildings in the village, according to the plaque beside the door.
We wandered through the beautiful old streets. The slate hung cottages are a particular feature of the area.
The streets get narrower and narrower..
Squeeze Belly Alley. Only 18 inches wide at the far end!
By the time we left the drizzle was really closing in.
Seagulls nesting on the cliffs..
A nest with a view. Although personally I’d have installed a windbreak.
Port Isaac is really lovely and we will be back, on a warm and sunny day, to walk along the cliff tops and enjoy more of the stunning landscape.
