So here’s my post for Tara’s The Gallery, Week 10 over at Sticky Fingers the theme this week is to a share a secret of the world we live in. 

Whilst Cheshire has some really beautiful and special parts, this isn’t Cheshire!  This is Port Isaac in North Cornwall.  If you watch Doc Martin it may look familar to you as as this is where it is filmed although known in the show as Portwenn – if you visit during filming you may not be aware it isn’t called Portwenn as all the signage is changed!  My family own this cottage down there. 

I love being there.  I love being there with lil’ H and can’t wait to take Baby G in July.  With limited mobile signal and a dial up internet connection I can never be bothered to keep in touch – afterall we’re on holiday and we relax, we really relax. 

When the tide is out the harbour is brilliant rockpooling.  When the tide is in you sometimes get to watch some bankers bonus who didn’t believe the “Cars must be moved by 7 o’clock” sign, float out to sea.  I have seen this happen many, many, many times and with a vino in hand sitting on the harbour wall that is something that will never cease to entertain me!  The example below is a brand new Range Rover Vogue – you’ve have thought Tarquin’s Breitling would have done a better job at helping him tell the time wouldn’t you?!

I have a small acorn of a thought at the moment, a thought that is growing, the thought is to live down here for the whole of next Summer.  My darling boy H will be 4 years old and will start school in the September and Baby G will be 18 months feels like special moment to building some childhood memories.  This thought is haunting me quite a lot at the moment, I’m wondering if with an improved Internet connections I could actually make it happen… I’m off to ponder some more … and check out the rest of this weeks Gallery posts – see you there!  Claire x
