... round pillars in the street which stopped the traffic, but if you had a card and swiped this terminal, the pillar would disappear into the ground and then rise again after you were through. Such a good idea. When we got to the pier there was a number of cruises to choose from, either up or down the River Fal. We stayed with the Helford River and bought our tickets for £13 each. It left at 2.00. So we had an hour to wait. We backtracked and did ...

... farmlands as far as the eye can see. Doc Martins barren vistas must have been filmed on the nearby Bodmin Moor. After leaving Port Isaac we went south to the village of Padstow.

It was small and felt like a place you would come to for reflection and peace. So much more welcoming than a large cathedral. It was now time for us the tackle the path down again. Just as treacherous but not as exhausting. The tide had turned and to get back to shore we had to ...

Today was a rest day. We slept in. I arose about 8.00 and did some planning for next week. Washing got done and the dishes got washed. There is a dish washer here but it's easier just to wash the dishes as we use them. Edie showered and washed her hair and announced that she was ready to go. Go where? That was the question. From our previous experience of Sundays there was not a lot to be done. So we decided that Penzance was a large town so there should be something open. We had ...
