The small fishing village of Mevagissey is spectacular. The twin harbour provides sheltered safe waters where the colourful fishing boats rise and fall as the tide ebbs and flows.
Sole, lobster, skate and plaice are the main catches. Seafood restaurants and Fish & Chips shops are plentiful in the village, which dates back to 1313.
We visited again a few days later and the tide was out. Makes for a very different look of the village.
The visitor parking area for Fowey is high above the village. Taking the walk down is okay but we definitely caught the village bus back up to the car.
On the River Fowey the deep harbour the Fowey allows large vessels, including cruise ships, to enter the estuary. The narrow winding streets have a great variety of restaurants, cafes and shops to entice the visitor to part with their money. It was a pretty gloomy day when we visit.
By mid afternoon the rain started in Fowey; seems to be the normal weather pattern for us at the moment.
