As the weather was sunny we decided to go to Polperro. Polperro is one of those places the word “quaint” was invented for. Tiny white washed cottages, flowers everywhere, and it’s now mainly holiday lets.
It’s a small seaside village which surprisingly still has a working harbour. It only has a tiny beach that is covered in water at high tide but you can catch a water taxi to other beaches close by.
The main harbour area is car free, not because that is how the locals like it, but because the streets are too narrow to allow cars to travel through them.
It’s a beautiful place to visit and sit having a drink on a hot day as you watch the world stroll past.

This weekend it was father’s day, so we all went out for a meal.
I don’t think I can ever remember Plymouth being so hot, and later the news said that this week was the hottest since 1976. I have been checking our outdoor thermometer which is in permanent shade and the hottest that has said was 34 degrees Centigrade.
Anyway although it was too hot to go walking around Plymouth Hoe afterward as there is no shade there I have bought out some photos of the Hoe during the summer. When the weather is like this I can see why people come here to visit.
