Boscastle 2004 and Dartmoor foals
I haven't quite finished with yesterday's posting.
This photo shows the Cornish village of Boscastle in 2004 when a freak storm flooded the village. It wasn't the place to be at the time as people were rescued from the rooftops by helicopters.
Cars were washed away out of the harbour into the sea.
Although it poured with rain yesterday and hardly stopped it was nothing like the storm that hit Boscastle in the Summer of 2004.
We headed home over from Cornwall to Devon via Dartmoor National Park.
Our normal route blocked by a mobile home, we always seem to be lucky that way, being behind someone who has been reading their satelight navigation system.
Sat Navs aren't that useful around Devon and Cornwall as the roads are narrow, the small bridges narrower still.
It was good to leave the rain behind in Cornwall,
Back to our own side
Following smaller vehicles is much more our style.
Over bridges that were meant to take horse and carts.
There are still lots of foals around on the moor.
Lots of open spaces for them, except they wander all over the road.
I wish they would keep to the grass, they have enough of it.
But if they want to wander on the road, I wouldn't dare argue with them.
