My money would be on the River Yealm at Newton Ferrers

I might have walked right past Shane though, it's always so damn foggy down there!

Spot on, Ray. Looking at Noss Mayo across Newton Creek from Newton Ferrers. Walking the dog this morning before setting off to Somerset to meet grandson no 1.

For reference, this is what it looks like in the sun:

The Ship’s nice, if a bit pricey, but having grown up in Newton, my heart belongs to the Dolphin.

Oooffffff, sounds painful, sorry to hear that Shane. Some fresh fruit, a warm bath and some gentle exercise might sort out your 'Turners'.

I’m trying a course of soothing oils and pastels, with some charcoal tablets. If that doesn’t work, I’ll have to try the old mathematician’s remedy and work it out with a pencil.

My son’s partner is a GP, and says that a touch of the Turners is the least of my problems...

One of the guys who runs the gallery where I have my pictures has just gone out to Western Ireland to do some diving. Great timing !

No problemo for us Mike, might even be warmer than usual.
