The olde worlde fishing village of Port Isaac on the Atlantic coast of North Cornwall is a sensory delight, with the all the sights, smells and sounds you would expect at the British seaside.
My wife Liz and I made a couple of visits here during our two week stay in the area, enjoying the rugged coastal scenery and quirky steep cobbled streets of the town, leading down to the small sheltered harbour surrounded by imposing sea walls.
As well as the lovely big views overlooking Port Isaac and the surrounding landscapes, I also enjoyed spotting and photographing the little details that do so much to define the nature of a place.
Such as this old fashioned red postbox I found embedded in a whitewashed wall as we walked along the main street, thankfully devoid of traffic and much nicer for it.
