PART B OF THE 20TH APRIL, DAY 7
We continued on to Polperro. We had to park at a carpark at the top of the village and catch a truck type vehicle down into the town. Again, these are the narrowest streets that I have ever seen!! Lots of people and vehicles all trying to pass one another in a very narrow lanes with shops on either side. We walked down through the streets to the harbour and decided to take a 1/2 hour boat ride. We really enjoyed this little boat ride. When we returned we rushed back to the car to continue our journey as we were hoping to get as far as Padstow tonight. I don't think we are going to make it. LOL!!
After Polperro we continued on to the town of Fowey. Again very narrow streets. I was not too happy here as we did not have any warning about a "park and ride" area and before we knew it we were down in Fowey trying to negotiate all the people whilst driving down the narrow lanes. It was very stressful to say the least. By the time we had negotiated numerous bends and people
we found a park down by the harbour; even in our tiny car we had to do a 6 point turn to try and park as the spaces are tiny!!! We had a quick walk around but I was worried about the risk of the hire car being damaged, and could not relax, so we did not stay long.
It was getting quite late, so we drove into Falmouth looking for accommodation. It took us until 7.30pm when we finally found somewhere. We could see B & B's but there was nowhere to park to check out the prices. We were exhausted after our busy day and found ourselves stuck in small narrow lanes that had no room for oncoming traffic to pass. We were glad/ relieved to find some accommodation. We stayed at The Observatory B & B and it was very nice and the people were lovely.
