A long time ago, while waiting to move into our present home, there was some sort of a problem with the seller. This took about a month to be sorted, so in the meantime, we stayed in a small cottage in Fowey. Since then Fowey, and especially the River Estuary, has been one of my favourite places to visit.
There are such lovely views looking down from the footpath. The photo at the top of this post shows the river meeting the sea, with the village of Polruan on the left and the red and white Gribbin tower - a daymark - on the skyline.
The tower can also be seen on the heading of this blog
The small boat, to the left of the photo below, is the ferry which runs from Fowey to Polruan.
And finally a small helicopter lands in the grounds of the Fowey Hotel.
The name Fowey - pronounced Foy - is from the Cornish language word Fowydh meaning Beech Trees.
