THE VIEW FROM THE DARTMOUTH OFFICE

JULY 2020 TVFTDO

Dartmouth has continued to fill up since the first weekend of July.

Welcome all to Dartmouth.

The rover has been chocka at times.

Paddle steamer Kingswear Castle is back in action. Almost all passengers are masked.

The steam trains are back and we have an expedtion superyacht in port, name of Seawolf.

Buzzards are being bastards....to mice and slow worms.

There's a destroyer, HMS Defender doing a sharp, fast about turn.

Plus the Navy also put on quite a show with almost all the picket boats, escorted by landing craft from HMS Albion.

Oh, and Comet Neowise thrown in for good measure.

We have an expedition superyacht in the port of Dartmouth. What that means is that it's a tough cookie. Tough enough to take a trip into ice and places where you wouldn't normally take your precious superboat. Anyway, this 58 meter long craft is called Seawolf and is a fine addition to the harbour.

The yacht was over on the moorings close to the Higher Ferry. Apparently once the pumps started working the RNLI crew towed the yacht to Darthaven. I missed that. Because I was too busy trying to snap the comet.

I was up to cover a lifeboat callout (bottom right corner of pic) but whilst waiting for something to happen I thought I would look for Comet Neowise. I really didn't expect to be able to snap it with Dartmouth in the foreground, but as you can see, it was just about possible. Astro-photographer I am not. A snapper, yes, that's me.
