MARCH 2020 TVFTDO


What a wet start to a month.

Not to worry though, this is Dartmouth and if it's raining one minute it might not be the next.

So far this month.......

A few rainbows

The filthiest river

The front end of one huge container ship.

And the first cruise ship of the season. The brand spanking new Fridtjof Nansen .

And I reckon that it's the owner of the world's loudest horn.

It's an unwritten rule of TVFTDO. If a rainbow is seen, it has to be snapped. And, obviously, some are better than others.
