I've had a trip to the seaside...... :D a week in sunny Salcombe. A great place and lovely people. FYI the roads are bloody narrow too! :shock:

There are more pics but I haven't found out how to get them of my cloud yet! :oops:

This was a clown last summertime who drove daddy's RR down on the mud to launch his jet ski!......they had to tow the daft s0d out with an old series 1 LR. Some people are not fit to be let out

Nice, it was a pleasure to meet you Richard. I only twigged after you left that that's who you were! DOH!!! I was going to leave the truck there as my Devon residence! Lovely place you're a lucky g&t!

Apparently there is a YouTube video of Cameron the assistance harbour master pulling that RR off the beach!
