THE VIEW FROM THE DARTMOUTH OFFICE

JUNE 2020 TVFTDO


The river is finally coming alive.

Pontoons have returned from their extended winter break.

Wonderful birds of prey, preying above us.

Superyacht Bunty popped in for a brief visit.

And a river swim

Some ladies here are quite rightly very pleased with themselves. They have just swum across the river Dart (and are about to swim back).
Surrounded by a safety team the four ladies in purple hats were delighted with their effort. Great to see.
