Hello everyone, this Friday for our afternoon off we drove over to Port Isaac, a little fishing village on the north coast well known for its appearance in 'Doc Martin'. We have always liked it but it has become a lot more crowded since the TV show and its best to go out of season if you just want to wander round quietly. The seagulls are pretty tame as you can tell by the pic, I did not have to crop in on this he just sat there posing for the camera (probably a left over extra from the show!)
Well here is the main street running down to the harbour, the sign sticking out on the left is where Lawrence L. B's wife has her little shop, nice stuff but you would expect it to be a little less 'mainstream'. I should imagine she makes a fortune in the summer!
Down on the harbour beach looking up at some lovely houses, (Doc Ms in the middle). I love those old stone steps.
Love the colour of the woodwork, you can only get away with that by the sea! This should be your house Sara(sparkly).
Must be tinyist house in the village, sweet, and I found a stick insect on the door! It must be warm enough for them down here as I have seen them elsewhere too.
From the harbour, fishing boats getting ready to leave.
And, well, you can guess after a good wander there is one thing you must have and thats hot crumpets and a bit of cake! And a very nice bit of cake it was too!! If you go there I recommend the chocolate.
Today I did my usual car booty round the one in Truro and spotted this lovely little nursing chair. I love the shape on the back quite gothic I thought. Well it was mine for a fiver and I thought it would make a nice day bed to Midge. Well those of you with cats will know that as soon as something new is bought into the house it is immediately made there's by said cats! No exeption here, five minutes in, blanket and cushion on, call Midge to come and try it out, turn round and......Boris is on it!
Poor little Midge will have to wait till his majesty gets up!!
