low tide

After a very easy drive down to North Cornwall we arrived a little early to check into our holiday let on the cliff tops at Port Quin. We are staying in a NT holiday property for the first time and once in it is what you expect from the NT, comfortable nicely done, very well organised and even a rucksack with picnic gear to use. The only downside is no phone signal and very slow wifi (but maybe that's an upside). In extras is a pic of the upper floor apartment we are in with lovely views over to the Rumps headland. Passing in front of the old house is the coastal path which I think is going to get much of our attention this week. The view back into the inlet of Port Quin provided our amusement this evening as 2 coasteering groups tackled activities in the sheltered waters and a few path walkers stripped off and went for a swim.
The main blip was taken on our arrival, we wondered down to the old pilchard port where the tide was out and a few families enjoyed rock pooling. We also noticed a homemade sign 15 mins walk up the hill, past our holiday let, to a wonderful pop up cafe / bar in a big modern barn. It's only been open 3 days and has lovely view back to the sea and was the reason we ended up an hour later than our checking in time. 
Looking forward to the week ahead.
