A few pictures from Porlock

We left Long Sutton and drove across country to Porlock on the north Somerset coast, where we were planning to stay for a couple of days over the late May bank holiday. We stopped on a campsite about 2 miles out of the town. It was large and busy, not surprising considering it was holiday time.
Porlock has two 'beaches,' Porlock Weir which we visited in the evening. Here a river flows down into the sea, there are a few houses and a large pub. The beach is shingle and there is a little area where boats can moor up. The pub is a distinct advantage! A couple of snaps with monochrome conversions.





Porlock beach lies in front of the town and we walked there from the campsite the next morning down a leafy lane. The  long beach (around 4 miles) is all shingle with a sea wall and an extensive piece of marshland behind it. We had to take it all very slowly as we had ancient dog Hettie with us. But she managed it with plenty of stops. Porlock was very quiet considering the time of year. it seemed a pleasant place to be,  just slightly strange!
