Porlock

Well you never know what you will find around the next bend in the road! We found a car boot sale. I had to be very strong and restrain myself.

When we arrived in Porlock, they were setting up for carnival night. It’s only a small village, and we were asked to move on each time we thought we had found a place to park! Anyway, it worked out fine and we had a fabulous view of the parade, sitting outside the pub with a Guinness.

We also went out to look at Porlock Weir. I love these little harbours, it still amazes me that the boats stay upright on their “stands” when the tide is out!

After Porlock we stopped in at Bude to look at the seaside pool, couldn’t actually get to it cause the tide was in, but we wandered along the beach and onto another weir.

Note the wetsuits!

Boscastle was also an interesting stop along the way.

We also visited the Lynmouth and Lyndon cliff railway. It’s powered by water, caught the train up the cliff then walked back down.
