Looking forward to the weather clearing up.

Disappointed but thats the British weather for you. Good call though mollers. I would have only slowed you down in my little Searider

Cheers guys

Ever thought of being a weather forecaster Mollers :-)

Was very disappointed to begin with but thankful now - I went out in Dartmouth today. Luckily I Didn't stray to far as on route to Salcombe it really blew up! Had to crawl back at a snails pace. Still good fun though and it got me out of painting at home :-)

On what would've been depart day, it's over-cast and blowing 'brave'. The sea was smashing into Fal Bay yesterday and still will be today. Setting off in this would be torture.

Don't think there's any question over whether it was the right choice!
