I had a lovely time visiting my mate Frank(who is really called Andrew Grundon - it's a long story) and his family. We took a trip to Port Issac yesterday as Frank had to meet up with a guy from the production company that make the tv series Doc Martin. I've never seen it, I'm not a big tv watcher, but I'm told it's a good show. It's filmed in Port Issac. Frank is doing the signwriting for some of the buildings that are being used in the series.
Here he is in his workshop with one of them, a huge sign for an establishment called Large Restaurant. He's a very talented man my mate Frank/Andrew. I've put this slideshow on before, but I'm putting it on again for the benefit of anyone who might not have seen it last time.
Back home last night, then to the car boot sale in Exeter today. I managed to find some louvre doors for the next bit of workshop building.
But here is a shot of today's greatest bootsale bargain - a very fine 19th century pitcher made at the Fishley's pottery in Fremington, North Devon.
