Here is the problem.



Here is the solution they came up with.


Local opinion is divided.

The Happy Couple





We have had a fortnight of very unsettled weather, very brief sunny periods punctuated with heavy, blustery showers.


But after a gloomy, damp start, Saturday afternoon was beautifully sunny. 

The timing couldn't have been better for this couple.











The location is the Memorial Garden,  in Devonport Park. 


I was passing by, and stopped to see the professionals at work.

MS Amadea at anchor in Plymouth Sound.


The cruise ship Amadea sailed into Plymouth from Dublin during last week .
She operates in the German market so we had several hundred German visitors thronging 
the waterfront and the narrow streets in the historic Barbican area


While she was in port the ferry from France, MS Armorique, sailed in from Roscoff.

Keeping their eye on the ball.


Yesterday Plymouth Albion  (in red) played against Hartpury College 
in a pre season friendly match, as both prepare for the start of their league programmes in September.


I think the Albion coaching staff have quite few problems to address.

Desirable riverside properties


Looking across the Camel Estuary from Padstow towards Rock, 
where 42.9% of houses are second homes.


Research published last week reveals that house prices in the Rock area  
are 22 times the average annual salaries of workers in the area. 
It is not difficult to see that in many parts of Devon and Cornwall 
local families have little chance of finding affordable housing.

The Birth of a Volcano?


Localised turbulence on an otherwise placid sea.


Looking down from the cliff, on the South West Coastal Path, 
near Constantine Beach on the North Cornish coast.
