Fowey and Hall Walk

Rook with a Book, a tribute to Daphne duMaurier
Hall Walk

The Boddinick ferry carried us across the harbor’s upper neck.

Du Maurier’s first Cornwall home is across the bank, behind the ferry.

The little free library in Boddinick. Perhaps a gift from Dr. Who?

Up the hill and a sharp right into the former grounds of a long vanished great house. Wild onion and bluebells abound.

It was a misty day.

We detoured up to St, Wyllow’s, Lanteglos-by-Fowey.

The farmer next door at Churchtown Farm added a much appreciated amenity since I was last here.

With helpful instructions.

Returning to Fowey by the passenger ferry from Polruan, we had a late lunch of delicous pasties and cream tea at the Cornish Bakery

…just across the lane for the bookstore.

Yep. I couldn’t agree more.

We ended the day with a delicious late dinner of crab sandwich, seafood salad, Doombar ale and sticky toffee pudding at the Galleon Inn.
