Amazing but we have only managed to get to October. Will 2020 never end ?

There's some wild water swimming.

Noss on Dart Marina gets some oversized building blocks.

Dart Harbour begins to pack up the seasonal pontoons.

And storm Alex came and made its presence felt.

Do take a look at The Pick of TVFTDO.

Search and you will find it. Hint: try 'Special Pages"

Some surprising scenes as storm Alex passed through. As you can see, this is right in the centre of the river, in one of the most sheltered harbours in the south. I don't think the man aboard the motor boat Edna Jo felt all that sheltered.

Saturday and Sunday saw Dartmouth Fishing Festival get under way using Covid rules.

This guy didn't look all that convinced that fishing is the hobby for him.

A few more days and it'll be rising behind the Daymark

Border Force cutter HMC Vigilant had an overnight on the town jetty and whilst leaving demonstrated their little on board car park.

Moonrise is in much the same position as sunrise this month.

It's a Marmite boat. You either love it or hate it. It's called Ithaka and this was its second visit to Dartmouth.


22 September 2020 - 18:47:37

Disturbing news of an accident at the Britannia Halt level crossing.

One of the Devon air ambulances (G-DAAN) landed up in the fields behind Bridge Road to take a casulaty to Plymouth.

Pastures new for this flock above Inverdart.

2 October 2020 - 13:05:55

It's not often we can see the West Rock Cardinal buoy.

Equally it's not all that often that cruise ship Arcadia passes by at the same time.

22 September 2020 - 16:59:54

One of many lifeboat shouts in September. The Dart Harbour patrols had originally ensured the safety of the crew of motorboat Zulu.

Dart RNLI's new Atlantic 85 lifeboat took over the tow on the account of its vastly superior horsepower.

That's yacht Capercaillie all lit up on the left.

24 meters long she sailed in from Coruna, Spain.

24 September 2020 - 16:19:00

Wrong lens, wrong shutter speed.

But it's a Chinook. Always worth snapping.

29 September 2020 - 07:24:38

Some sunny days have followed some ho-hum sunrises.

This is not one of those ho-hum sunrises.

1 October 2020 - 16:03:36

There is so much reconstruction under way on both sides of the river.

The steels have arrived at Mayflower Waters in Kingswear.  So it's Lego at Noss on Dart, and Meccano in  the village

Seems to have been quite an increase in dragonfly numbers. This lad (or lass) was stuck in our lounge trying to get out.

The photo shoot didn't delay him long. Look at the texture on those eyes.

In two days time BRNC officer Lily-Mae Fisher is to swim from Totnes to Dartmouth for charity. This is a training run with two kayakers escorting her, She was headed for Warfleet creek, turned around and headed straight back up stream .

5 October 2020 - 14:09:51

Impressive. And extremely fit.

5 October 2020 - 10:43:29

Truckload after truckload turned up at Noss on Dart and these huge concrete blocks were craned off.

It's much like Lego, only you wouldn't want to drop one on your toe.

6 October 2020 - 09:49:43

The visitors jetty is dismantled and sent off for its winter holiday.

6 October 2020 - 16:53:57

This Merlin (ZJ131) put in a surprise late afternoon run, flying low downriver out to sea and then back again.

20 September 2020 - 08:54:01 to 09:00:59

Hopefully you will be able to see moving pix of superyacht Horizons III departure.

I haven't fully mastered this video posting lark yet. So let me know if there's an issue.
