We are ready for lunch but so many eating places we are not sure yet where to eat. We will look around.
The Three Pilchards - where we finally ate
We finally decide on a pub where we can eat way above the rooftops with a good view of the inner harbour.
There are several eating terraces on different levels on the hillside and being so hot we decided not to eat inside
We really pitied the waitresses who had to climb so many steps to deliver the food
We went as high as one could go and
we ordered Cottage Pie and I have to say it was the best we have ever tasted
It was not minced/ground beef but large chunks of the most tender meat I have tasted with lots of mushrooms and gravy to die for
Along with that before eating we had to clean off the table with napkins, my bottle of water and hand sanitising spray
The gulls were circling - part of the Cornwall coastal experience!
Towards the end of our meal we went down to a lower level to find some shade
Having eaten the tide had come in
Note the wooden beams holding the upper part of this building up
Still walking we come to the wall that divides the inner and outer harbour
No, we didn't!
We are going up onto the cliffs instead
You don't see it here but will see it clearly later
There is a cave underneath these steps
You can see why it was a smuggling area, lots of caves in the cliffs
The outer harbour
One of the caves
We are making our way to the top
and walking down the cliff on the other side looking out over the English Channel where it meets the Atlantic
and on our way back watch these young guys diving into the harbour
Another group of swimmers
and someone who likes the high life
and some more on the way up
I still have another post to do on this lovely cove but I will spare you the 150 photos I took!
Do visit the previous post if you have not already done so as it is so picturesque
