Lenticular Raindrops


 By our standards we haven't had much rain lately, 
so for many gardens the recent showers have been welcome.

The wine dark sea.



                                            But Achilles, 
                                            weeping, quickly slipping away from his companions,
                                            sat on the shore of the gray salt sea, and looked out to the wine-dark sea.

                                                                                                                        Homer   The Iliad

The hottest day of the year so far.


Couples enjoy an early evening stroll along the Mount Batten breakwater,
where a gentle sea breeze offered some relief to the humidity of the day.


Nightfall brought enormous thunder storms across the Channel from France.
The forecast for the weekend promises a lot more electrical activity and torrential rain storms.

Looking both ways in Plymouth Sound.


Looking West,
past Drake's Island towards Mount Edgecumbe Country Park, on the Cornish shore.


Looking East,
into Jennycliff Bay, on the Devon shore.

The 600 mile long South West Coastal Path follows both shores, 
and provides outstanding views of the many events which take place in Plymouth Sound.

The Frontier Crossing


This train is at the half way point on Brunel's iconic 1859 bridge, over the River Tamar, at Saltash.
At this point it leaves England for the mystical, Celtic land of Cornwall.
