September Eh ?

We've a new lifeboat, and it's already had quite a few 'shouts'.

There's construction everywhere. Cranes galore.

And masses more snaps inside. Just click any picture.

Do take a look at The Pick of TVFTDO.

Search and you will find it. Hint: try 'Special Pages"

According to the RNLI three yachties from Bristol were sailing from Brixham to Plymouth when their mast snapped. Lucliky there were no injuries and crew aboard Dart RNLI's new Atlantic 85 lifeboat went out to assist.  As you can see, a snapped mast creats a bit of a mess.

70 metre superyacht Horizons III sailed in from Reykjavik for an overnight stay. It's the property of US billionaire John Tyson of the Tyson meat company. They probably serve up some mighty mean steaks aboard.

Sun and mist. The best combination for a decent snap.

Trees above inverdart draw their own extremely long shadows.

This really needs speech bubbles. Two friends atop one of the searchlight emplacements at Froward Point.

And talking of Inverdart, it would appear that Derrick has a twin arriving.

It's a two crane sort of establishment.

And so is Darthaven Marina (a two crane sort of establishment).

The big lifting crane is getting an inspection.

Certain low-ish tides down at the entrance to Warfleet Creek create enticing little cut throughs.

The little pink cottage has now gone and its replacement will soon start rising.

The cruise ships moor up off Torquay for a few weeks at a time. And then they head off down channel passing Dartmouth. This is Arcadia.

Up at Noss work continues on the shoreline.

Difficult to see from so far away, but it looks like some sort of temporary dam is being put in place.

For a very little chap, this lad has quite a voice.

Outside of a yacht or a cruise ship the railway maintenance loco has the loudest horn.

Lots of Spitfire flyovers during the first week in September. Being in Kent (twice) I missed most of them.

This is the best I saw of G-ILDA, the Boultbee Academy two seater.

15 September 2020 - 15:00:03

The middle of September and still the tourist boats are doing great business.

7 September 2020 - 23:21:44

The week after Regatta would normally see Kingswear more or less in the dark. Not the case this year.

9 September 2020 - 12:36:10

Observing. Just observing. Both of us.

8 September 2020 - 10:15:42

There's no word on his catch. But anything larger than a sea bass might have resulted in a lifeboat shout.

19 September 2020 - 10:05:43

Some very neat, very long and likely very expensives lines on the back end of Horizons III.

But then, you wouldn't want to lose your $80m yacht, would you.

20 September 2020 - 08:54:01 to 09:00:59

Hopefully you will be able to see moving pix of superyacht Horizons III departure.

I haven't fully mastered this video posting lark yet. So let me know if there's an issue.
