Spectacular Harbour View
This is a view of the harbour from the climb up to the castle. Lovely isn't it. Further up the path and looking left you'll see St. Mary's Church - we'll visit that later.
Walk Up To The Castle
Leave the harbour, go past the funfair, cross the road, pass the little cafe and climb up to the castle. Nice views of the harbour and the town begin to open up as you climb.
Couldn't resist this lovely view back to The Grand looking past the lobster nets at the harbour. That boat "The Hispaniola" is just to the left of the pots.
As you get to the harbour you pass the main batch of fish stalls. Walk onto the first harbour jetty and cut through the buildings so that you're by the harbour side rather than the beach...
The amusements may be "tacky" but the views are still quite nice - beacuse its built on a cliff, the buildings stack up one behind another and streets lead up and away from the seafront.
And of course there's the beach, for just messing about, playing games, building sandcastles, eating lunch or taking a donkey ride.
There's a cliff lift just off the bridge, by The Grand Hotel. It's 40p to go down, and we're gonna go down soon, but not on this lift.
Walking back the way we came there are lovely views back towards the North Bay and the harbour, and to The Grand Hotel just across the Valley Footbridge.
