The Royal Omani Navy Corvette Al-Rasikh in Plymouth Sound.


The Al-Rasikh sailing across Plymouth Sound in the late afternoon, a few days ago.


Making her way into the River Tamar, on her way up to the Devonport Naval Base.

The South West Coastal Path.


Not every mile of the 600 mile Coastal Path takes you along the rugged cliff tops of the region.
This section at Mount Batten, where the River Plym enters Plymouth Sound, 
offers some wonderful "watering holes" like this one, The Bridge .

A small but welcome patch of shade.


Another day of record temperatures,
but the high humidity makes life difficult.

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.
