The story behind this video

Tucked away on the North Devon coast, the impossibly quaint old fishing village of Clovelly is now a major tourist attraction.

With tiny cottages tucked away on the very steep and narrow cobbled streets leading down to the harbour, it takes quite a bit of effort to climb up and down the hill.

But was well worth it, as there was an ice cream shop on the harbour wall that sold probably the best ice cream that Liz and I have ever tasted.

So while we rested up after our climb down, licking our ice creams, I took the opportunity to shoot a few seconds of video showing two views of the harbour with gentle Atlantic swell breaking on the shoreline.

Then it was time to attempt the ascent back up those cobbled streets, carrying a few pounds of camera gear over my shoulder.

I made it eventually but Liz had more sense than me.

She took the shuttle Land Rover back up to the gift shops and was happily buying presents when I finally staggered to the top!
