Where I stayed
So today we are going to start in Portperro, arguably the most picturesque old fishing village in Cornwall. Weather great again so we brave the narrow lanes, switchback turns and steep, steep hills!
But first, a traditional British Breakfast. A lot of food, keeps you going all day. Fantastic treat once in a while, washed down with a nice cuppa!
As we drop down into Polperro it comes clear that you can’t drive directly into the village, you have to park and then either walk, ride in a horse and buggy or take a mini bus! We decide to walk. It’s neat to see the small river run between the houses and the street with all the little bridges
Where to next? Looked at the map and decided to go across to the other coast via Bodmin Moor. We ended up in Padstow, another fishing village, had afternoon tea, and then headed back to the hotel via the cliff road. I love these little roads, the way they drop down to each cove we pass through, then climb up the other side again. These little coves are all outlets for rivers that run down from the hills and then through the beach creating all sorts of fun for the little pirates out there. Back to the hotel, more Greek food and bed. Tomorrow we head back to Farnham for the last day, stopping at Dawlish in Devon on the way. See you later.
