    um ... where's the picture, Herman ? (or is that why it's called "Road to Nowhere" ?)

    Like that second one Pete. Love the line of the clouds and that battered old road. The cactus bring back good memories of a trip to Saguaro NP a few years back.

    Slapton Line

    A not very good photograph taken on a dull, overcast morning (this morning) through the top deck front window of a moving bus on the main road from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth travelling north along what is known locally as "Slapton Line" or indeed just "The Line". The road is built on the top of the shingle ridge that separates the sea (English Channel) on the right from the fresh water of Slapton Ley on the left.
    This area was used in the months running up to the invasion of Europe in 1944 for seaborn landing practice by American troops.
    The dog is "Finn" and the barely visible gentleman on the bike is "Alan" from the village of Torcross at the south end of the line.

    Wow
    I went that way walking between Chillington and Frogmore this morning, avoiding the main road, then decided to get the bus home but a friend drove by and gave me a lift. I should have gone up there a couple of weeks ago, I've not seen so many snowdrops along a hedge as there are between Loo Cross and Frogmore.
