The first day we went straight to Boscastle, we got there around lunch time so we ate our packed lunch and set off to explore. It was very windy, and quite a cold wind, but very bright as we made our way down through the village. We called in at a pottery and some other gifty type shops before heading off for the harbour mouth. It was pretty steep at the end, the harbour being in the River Valance, before it reaches the sea. It was so windy that we climbed up to take some photos but didn’t dare go any further for fear of being blown off the cliff. We needed a tea and cake after that little adventure so we went in a little tea rooms to warm up and sample the wares! After that we went to the NT shop and found out more about the August 2004 floods. It was still early so we returned to the car and made our way towards Crackinton. It is a lovely little beach, and at this time of year, absolutely deserted. We had been taking photos all day so I will just share some with you now.
We then made our way to the B and B and spent the next hour marvelling at our luxury accomodation with bath robes, St Kits Herbery unguents and the lovely bed. The owner, Liz, had booked us a table at Riverside, in Boscastle, so we returned for yet more photos and a scrumptious meal of lobster. Home in time for The Bridge.
