Port Isaac aka Port Wenn.

Well you don’t have to go to the fun fare to ride the big dipper, you just hop on a Western Greyhound bus between Camelford, Port Isaac, Port Gaverne, Tintagel and Wadebridge. The road was up hill, down dale, narrow, twisty and in places barely 8 feet wide. The bus drivers just take it in their stride, driving as if they were on a main road. It got very interesting when we met another large vehicle with just millimetres to pass each other. Nail biting, edge of the seat stuff.

Arriving in Port Isaac we were informed that some area’s may be closed off as they were filming another series of ‘Doc Martin’. We did see Martin Clunes aka Doc Martin from afar outside his house but got very close to his girlfriend Louisa ( Lisa Glasson) before she was whisked away in a chauffeur driven car. Funnily enough Martin appeared on the local TV news just after we arrived back at the van.

I know it is usual to put "wish you were here" on postcards home, but your Cornish photographs really are making us think just that. Glad you saw Port Isaac on an "interesting" day. We really must go see my brother! As for the roads, just take them in your stride. You know when to start to take more care when the hedgerows both sides start to scrape the mirrors, you get a growth of grass in the centre, and then meet a five bar gate that has to be opened, and closed behind you. There are many like that. Hope the weather continues as good as it appears to be in the pics.

Hi Peter and Margaret
Thanks again for the tip off it really is a lovely place, we'll certainly get fit walking up and down all these hills.
