Along The Way: Fowey

The little port of Fowey is one of the most picturesque towns on the Cornwall coast, particularly popular with the yachting crowd. That would be us.  When winds and tides allow, we sometimes can make our way that far west. There are a number of historic buildings there, including the ruins of St. Catherine's Castle and a 14th-century church. You'll also find a number of great little restaurants and bistros. If you like to try local specialties, we recommend the Fowey River mussels. English author and playwright Daphne du Maurier (1907–1989) lived in Fowey (She wrote Rebecca, a Gothic romance about a guy who killed his wife on a boat!), as did Kenneth Grahame (1859–1932), the author of The Wind in the Willows
