  1. Great Post!

  2. Included with step 22 should be that Porthcurno Beach is the opinion of some to be one of the most beautiful reclusive beaches in the world. Surrounded quietly by rocky cliffs, a true hidden beauty…And the mystery of the ancient Merry Maids…

  3. I would add:

    Shop for Cornish fashion at Seasalt in St. Ives


    Try Cornish wine.

  4. for play it forward: a great pair of walking shoes, pack very light! so you can easily manage your own suitcase;
    pack shirts that you can rinse out and hang dry overnight; bring a “true” water repellant jacket. leave your worries and cares behind and enjoy every moment. The trip is fantastic.

    Paul and Karen

  5. Watch one season of Doc Martin. You will be able to enjoy Port Isaac all the more. And watch one season of Poldark so you will understand about the dangers of the tin mining industry in the early 1800’s.
