1.  Webcam lite

Go to Google and search for a Dartmouth Webcam, what do you come up with ? or why not just click here to see it ?  simples! 

Why the 'lite' name? well it's a cut down version, one that loads quickly and does not require any extra and difficult software or plug-ins. is the only Dartmouth tourist website with a working webcam, is your business advertising on it?

To update the image simply press the f5 key on the very top row of your keyboard.

We would like to thank Nigel Way of the Royal Castle Hotel for permission to use their webcam feed.


2.   Stand Up Paddle (SUP)

Canoe Adventures offer guided canoeing aboard Voyager 12-seat canoes working from Tuckenhay (40 minutes from YHA Salcombe), halfway between Totnes and Dartmouth in the green South Hams along the famous River Dart.

This adventure is suitable for all ages, with full equipment provided and no previous experience necessary. Special rates apply on production of a valid YHA membership card.  This and these photographs are all we know, but it looks, err "challenging". 

The net says "The first stand up paddle surfers emerged in Waikiki in the early 1950s, when the post-war tourism boom saw Matson cruise liners deposit thousands of thrill-hungry Americans on the beach under the shadow of Diamond Head."


3.   Another ahhhh moment!

This beautiful baby Alpaca also known as a Cria was born at Woodlands on Tuesday 2nd March. Beth Lewis, Animal Keeper, who was with Mum Rose when the new Cria was born said "I couldn't resist giving the new arrival a nickname and have called him Marshmellow because he’s so sweet and fluffy. Mum did a fantastic job, he is an adorable little boy and is having a great time with all this nice weather we’ve been having".

Marshmellow now lives with a herd of 5 other Alpacas, 2 males and 3 females at Woodlands Zoo-Farm near Dartmouth where guests will be able to enter a competition to choose a new name for Marshmellow.

"All of the Alpacas are looking after Marshmellow, they are herding animals and they are very good at protecting each other, they also protect the sheep that share their paddock with them" Beth said. At only a week old Marshmellow is full of character and is always jumping and dancing around the paddock with his family.  For more click here.
