I visited the lifeboat station and was made very welcome by the station coxain chief and he explained in great detail how the station and his staff functioned, very brave men and most of them unpaid volunteers, in all a very pleasant visit, thank you to Mr. Robert McQeen for his time and attention.

This was my first visit back to Portpatrick in over thirty years and it was even more picturesque than I remembered. This must be what what Cornwall was like in the nineteen fifties. There is a busy, working harbour, a lifeboat station, plenty of shops and tea rooms, and lots of space to sit down and have a picnic.
