Day trip to Port Isaac in England……..

We hurried just a little thinking it might be farther than we could calculate on the map to Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed.  It’s about a distressed doctor that grew up  with no parental coaching to speak of (he was shipped off to a military school early on)  and is socially deficient  to the max!! To top it all off, at the site of blood , he throws up…..he is involved with the school teacher in town and they have a baby son…. We really like this show and all the characters and swore that if we ever got close, we would try to make it possible to see the town……Its shown on  public broadcasting  in series and this year maybe we would be lucky and they would have all the cast there but  we found out, they would be filming in 4 days,… crud!!!…….It was a 3 hour drive and a bad breakfast but finally we made our way into the town and found a place to park just outside  the city limits and right on the Coast……..here are some pics to see of the town…………

The tide was out when we got there but quite afew visitors were coming into the village.....the boats were sitting in the sand and they all have a large chain hooked onto them for when the tide comes back in.....they'll be floating
