THE VIEW FROM THE DARTMOUTH OFFICE

APRIL 2020 TVFTDO


A week or so into the Covid-19 outbreak.

This is likely to be a strange month for pictures. And for life itself.

A rather harrowing farming shot.

Surprise visit from a Chinook. And two Pumas on display

Social distancing at BRNC Passing Out Parade, plus Hawk jets flypast.

A great double rainbow. And, oh, the small matter of a heart attack. Mine

Lots of us are confined to quarters. Thankfully the farming community is still hard at work.
That's a big field for Devon. But like most Devon fields, it has a slope.

A bit of a surprise - on a video call to my brother when the unmistakable sound of a Chinook came through. Heading up-river from way out to sea and very low, it looked like we would soon be treated to a close up view. But then..........it suddenly turned west.
