This Merlin (ZJ135) did a few loops and whirls. Oh, okay, slight exaggeration, so it banked over and circled a bit.

The French like to describe the driver of such things (the thing in the background) as un pilot. Pronounced as un pee...lot. This is nonsense of course. As everyone in Dartmouth knows, the correct pronunciation is un pee...lock.

Part of a three day railtour extravaganza based in Cornwall, enthusiasts spent an afternoon in Kingswear travelling from, and back to Penzance aboard this Midland Blue Pullman (locos 43047 and 43055 for the number grabbers out there). These are what I used to know as HST 125's. A lovely sight, shame I only just saw them departing.

Sunday morning is the normal training day for the RNLI. This Sunday the Dartmouth crews linked up with the big boat from Torbay for some co-ordinated searching. Sadly, atno time did we see Dartmouth and Torbay together, but then we only have our two degree gap to see out to sea. So you'll have make do with the Torbay craft.

All afternoon the Kingswear trots were subjected to winds producing white horses in the harbour. Nowhere else, just around the trots.

One of the largest greenhouses around is opposite us, in Kingswear. You can now see just why it's called a greenhouse.

File under: because I wanted to try. A late night run down the river in pitch darkness from a Royal Navy Wildcat. Incredibly the camera almost took a usable picture. It's identifiable as a helicopter anyway. Not that you could recognise the pilot.

Definitely more seals around this year. The little lads and lasses have yet to be given their own pontoon. So, in the meantime it's airbeds all round.

We got a couple of circles from this police helicopter. Likely it was on a training run, and anyone down at Dartmouth Castle might have seen an extraordinary low flypast.
