The watcher on the shore

The tugs are moving this rig across Plymouth Sound,
but it appears that only me and the solitary sunbather on the shore are taking any notice.

Arrival and Departure

MV Eddystone is one of  six ships that were built to be available for use as naval auxiliaries
 to British armed forces 

  Here she is early on a recent grey, rainy day making her way into the River Tamar,
on her way to a berth in the Naval Base at Devonport.

A day or two later summer had returned and here she is, with the same escort vessels,
heading out of Plymouth Sound towards the open sea.

This where she was yesterday evening.

The UK National Health Service has a battle on its hands

Number 1  of their 8 tips for Healthy Eating says,
"The key to a healthy diet is to eat the right amount of calories for how active you are
so you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use."

Looking out to sea

We are looking out through the mouth of the River Tamar into Plymouth Sound,
through the narrows between Devil's Point, on the left, and Cremyll, on the right.
The little vessel heading towards Cremyll is the ferry which goes to and fro all the year.

A wider view from the Mount Wise lido.

The Lido at Mount Wise

This small lido is on the bank of the River Tamar, near where it enters Plymouth Sound.
It is not surprising that it there are so few swimmers this lunch time,
because our summer weather has deserted us, temporarily I hope. 
The pools are not heated, so only these hardy regulars were taking the plunge.
