With the summer sun shining a good english harbour is hard to beat. The smell of fresh fish and fishermen to watch with their catch is an interesting past time.

The food and stores were fantastic. Unfortunately the light house was restricted due to construction. It can only be seen far away. We had excellent time.

The Harbour area is at present under the process of being updated and modernised. Harbour looks better when the tides in.
