Yes, highest pub in Wales it was, but I think you will find its no longer a public house, a private house now or b&b

I guess we get a little complacent about seeing lifeboats in Poole, but I love seeing the all weather boats on station. Tamars are very purposeful looking bits of kit.

well, it's still an excellent pic, and you did post it on here, so you still get a "well done"

Hope you like the new searchlight array they fitted?
