Both Christopher and Lizzie wore
the traditional outfits in which they had been married and

Dartmouth in print again!
The Dartmouth dot TV crew rarely
buy boat magazines, their 21 year old Boston Whaler is just
fine for messing about on the river. However "Motor
Boat" available in almost any news agent has, as usual, more
than one reference to Dartmouth!
Page 34: "We stayed in the
river, which with its steep, oak-clad banks and general air
of summery activity was at its very best. An excellent
family dinner at the Dartmouth Arms was followed by a
comfortable night alongside the visitors pontoon."
Page 60: "One of England's
finest rivers, the Dart is often the first destination on a
West Country Cruise. Dartmouth's magnificent natural
Harbour makes you gasp as you come in past the castle and
see the colourful town stacked up the hillside."

The Dartmouth Food
Festival web site has had a big update,
here to see it.
From Brian Parker:
The Tornado photograph in last week's news is pure
Hornby Dublo. The man and child are obviously plastic
but well done. Very clever of the modeller to have open
doors to the carriages. Nice touch too for the different
tones to the track ballast. Vegetation could be better
Just goes to show that, if you take a picture of a very
clean steam locomotive from the angle at which models
are viewed, then it looks like a model!
