The local Weather Forecast for this weekend promises

unbroken sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday.

This means that large numbers of Plymouth residents will be making for the beach.
One of the popular local stretches of golden sand is the shore of Whitsand Bay.
It is a short drive from the city, but parking can be problematic for all but the early birds.
There is a regular bus service from the City Centre which goes right along the cliff road,
and many youngsters will cycle or walk.

At last we can get across the English Channel again


The Cross Channel Ferry from Plymouth goes to the charming town of Roscoff, in beautiful Brittany.

A glimpse inside the Church of Notre-Dame de Croaz-Batz, in the heart of Roscoff.


Take a look around the ship Amorique which can carry up to 1,500 passengers and 470 cars.

The Semaphore at Mount Wise

This modern "Sculpture" commemorates the series of 32 semaphore signalling stations 
which were built by the Admiralty, to send vital information between London and 
commanders of the Royal Navy vessels based  in Plymouth Dock in about 1810.
