Lovely Looe

We’re heading into Cornwall now and stop off for a brief visit at the cute little town of Looe.

Enroute we visit Seaton beach – a quiet little hamlet a few miles away from Looe.

It’s a wild stretch of beach bisected by the River Seaton with a handful of cafes and a car park.

Then we’re into the quaint little town of Looe with it’s wide sandy beach and winding streets full of flowers and traditional seaside paraphernalia.

As well as being a tourist mecca it is still a working fishing port. Its name – Looe or in Cornish Logh – means ‘deep water inlet’.

The town is actually divided in two by the River Looe and is comprised of East Looe and West Looe (or in Cornish Porthbyhan meaning ‘little cove’) and the two are connected by a bridge.

Here’s a few more colourful snaps of the main town before we had over to check out the smaller, less touristy West Looe.
