MadMother's Port Isaac Diary...Part One...
Friday 8th April
Arrived at 3pm. Letting agent displayed warped sense of humour and sent us through the village. Mr MM delighted to discover that roads six inches wider than car were still two-way. Found cottage, dumped luggage and headed out in search of Doc Martin stars. Filming in progress at Bert's restaurant. Clear view from beach but photography hampered by brilliant sunshine directly overhead. Mr MM's big lens unable to cope. Took a couple with my camera but definitely over-exposed. Not a cloud in sight. I blame the politicians; all that hot air from Parliament is affecting the weather. Sent over-exposed picture to Sen - miraculous improvement - Joe Absolom and Ian McNeice just visible in the corner.
Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th April
No filming at weekends. Spent weekend visiting local beauty spots, hoping to spot Doc Martin stars. Apparently, should have been at Tesco's in Wadebridge instead (Caroline Catz spotted there).
