Hogs pudding sarnies on Meadfoot Beach

Down to Meadfoot beach this afternoon to wolf down our hogs pudding sarnies.

Yappy yap dogs were everywhere. It’s October 1st. They’re allowed back to shit on beaches for the winter.

Of shags we could see hardly any.

Over towards Paington and Brixham were these little sailboats

Were they racing? No, they were flapping back and forth, as if part of a school.

There was plenty of weather around. The seasky was portentous with voluminous cloud.

Dump a shower of rain and a bolt of thunder up these dogs arses please!

The sailboats flippy flapped on, left to right, right to left across the brothy sea.

The Chagford Clangers

It’s Haze’s unofficial birthday today (birthday not actually until Monday)

We’ve driven down to Kingswear and gone up a dry creek (without a paddle, or wellies)

There’s been some top class Hazey waving at puff puff trains again.

There was a big seal chomping down mackerel by the quay; unfortunately, we were ferrying over to Dartmouth so I couldn’t see him/her very clearly.

Church bells had been clamouring away all afternoon. Why? Turns out it was a bell ringing competition in St Saviour church: the 8 Bell Final featuring teams of local campanologists.

Here I am swaying around and around to the Chagford Ringers (or Clangers). Made me go all swirly giddy them did.

(Ear muffs will be required when listening to this vid).

I don’t know if Chagford were victorious though.

But they won my Gold Medal Moment of the afternoon award.
