It's October 2004 -- so it's time for another visit to Devon and Cornwall

Devon and Cornwall, here we come again!

Devon's down, Cornwall's next

The Port William hotel at Trebarwith Strand in Cornwall, just south of Tintagel of dubious King Arthur fame

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Lacking enough vacation days to wait for the next weekly pub quiz in Devon, we dart down past Barnstaple, Hartland Point and Golden Park (scene of last year's exuberant fun), and Bude and Tintagel to insinuate ourselves into the small community of Trebarwith Strand, a tiny outlet to the sea not far from . . . Trebarwith.

We lock up the rental and go check out the digs for the next few days.

Here's the lovely old Port William inn, poised solidly upon the Southwest Coast Path.

Lovelier and lovelier, part of the pub's dining room (above) and the bar (below). "Williieee, Willlieee, Woooo" the resident parrot charmed some but not all of us at breakfast.

The Port William, facing out to the sea, with possibly the friendliest staff along this whole stretch of coast. It's a treat anywhere to fetch up in an inn with such wonderful people in residence.

Now that we're here, and well watered and fed, let's go for some hikes!
