No relation, as far as I know, but great to follow a namesake in theOlympics. And recently in Strictly Come Dancing 2012 on BBC1, but didn’t make the final. Enjoy “retirement”. Thanks for giving us years of GB success. Good luck Victoria. (estimated date – EP)
Below are just 2 of the many sculptures on display (and for sale) at the Mythic Garden and Birch and Alder Arboretum near Chagford. Open all year but the sculptures are seasonal from May. The low light at this time of year (late Sept) makes it a wonderful place to visit. Go to Mythic Garden website for more info. Or visit my Google Album for more pictures and a slideshow.

The Wedding of William and Catherine, Chagford 21st May. The bride and her father left the Mill End Hotel in an American Police car for the wedding in Chagford, followed by a reception at nearby Monks Withycombe.Loads more wedding pictures here in my Google album.
Came past our house today 15th Sept 2010. There seemed to be as many Police motorcyclists as racing bicycles. But here are a few shots on the A382 as they rode up towards Whiddon Down.
A day out on the South Devon Railway. Brilliant! From Buckfastleigh to Totnes, only a short ride but fantastic fun. Hats off to the volunteers who work tirelessly to make this all work so well. We had intended to do the boat trip on the Dart but Totnes took up most of the day. (estimated date – EP)
Castle Drogo sits on top of the Teign Gorge, and from Furlong, where we lived until 2015, dominates the horizon. Jill was asked by the Okehampton Times to take photos of visitors enjoying the guided tours of the roof, which is not normally open to the public. However, quite a good covering of snow had fallen overnight which left the roof very slippery and a danger to visitors so we were alone (great) on the roof to enjoy the views. Here’s a couple of pictures from the morning. Many more in my Google Album page.
