November tomorrow - but what a slow year. Hurry up 2021.

Still what construction. Some of it on the water at Noss-on-Dart marina.

And some appalling weather. Luckily some of that photographed well.

The usual blind jetskiers. A fair few aircraft. And some boys from the blackstuff.

Do take a look at The Pick of TVFTDO.

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

It would appear that jetski salesman probably have an eyechart in the showrooms. Any prosepective purchaser who can read it too well is not allowed to buy. It's the only way to explain why jetskiers (in general) cannot read a speed warning sign.

Are jackdaws the bravest birds ? This chap buzzed the buzzard time and time again.

Trouble is, you can't out buzz a buzzard.

A  Royal Navy Merlin helicopter (ZJ120) circled BRNC and then headed down Old Mill Creek, just a shade too low for a good snap.

So, instead of a good snap, you get a funny one.

Disappointing. This Hercules simply flew on down the coast rather than head in and come up river.

26 October 2020 - 14:10:08

The last week in October and off go the RDYC pontoons for a winter's rest.

13 October 2020 - 12:23:51

Unusual sight on TVFTDO. Road resurfacing. This machine is known as a cold planer  (or ashphalt milling machine) and is taking off the top surface of the road in preparation of the new tarmac to be laid.

A strange looking two master. Or not. Actually two yachts with, rather unusually, the same height masts.

The one at the back is probably Rubicon 3.

8 October 2020 - 13:15:35

There have been up to nine cruise ships anchored round in Torbay. This is Zaandam having been opff for a little stroll.

31 October 2020 - 14:46:42

The Kingswear almshouses get the Kingswear scaffold treatment. That's a rather narrow lane outside.

31 October 2020 - 16:06:37

Not sure that I have ever taken a snap of people inside the searchlight emplacements. Although I have snapped plenty of pix of people up on the roof.

7 October 2020 - 16:15:55

In the course of two days the latest new build in Kingswear grew a storey.

23 October 2020 - 10:56:21

A rather sudden flypast of an RAF Hawk . First south, and then back northwards.

Any idea what the bright light on the back of the cockpit is for ?

31 October 2020 - 14:47:45

Up at Noss-on-Dart the Walcon team have been piledriving the stanchions into the riverbed for the new pontoon layout.

Viewed from nearly two miles away thorugh my long lens it looks like the floating bridge will cross the river. It's an illusion.

Just before three thirty on Wednesday, this rather fine double rainbow appeared.

28 October 2020 - 15:56:59

And then thirty minues later up popped another one.

Not it has moved a few degrees to the right (south). Reflectiing that the sun behind us was moving the other way.

18 October 2020 - 14:10:30

An extra eye. Still didn't help him read the speed markers.

But at last he can put the footage up on YouTube.

25 October 2020 - 08:48:16

From now on, to be known as Dartmouth's elephant cloud.

14 October 2020 - 16:49:01

The same aircraft (Royal Navy Merlin helicopter ZJ120)) emerged from the creek and headed down river in the sun.

And then exectuted a tight bank over Froward Point.
