Port Isaac.... continued
This is an example of the steep access laneway that I referred to in yesterday's posting. As one drove through the village itself, in parts the wing mirrors of the car (and we had a standard 4-door sedan) were only inches away from the building walls!
Sadly, the tide was out at the time of our visit - it would have been much more picturesque at high tide. However, as you can see, cars (ours included) were parked on the sand in the harbour, and we were able to venture out onto the harbour walls and take in views of the village from that perspective.
The "little" house at bottom left of this scene is the one used as Doc Martin's surgery. Up close it seems a fair sized building in its own right, but here it seems dwarfed by the adjacent homes!
This young lad informed us he was packing live lobsters for export to Spain. There were many pots, each crammed full with this delectable seafood, so it seems his job had just begun!
Below is the view from the surgery area looking towards the harbour wall I stood on to take the 2nd photo above.
