Before Curtain up…

There’s lots to see at Dartmouth Castle – besides Taming of The Shrew…

In the dead time (if there can be such a thing) before the play commences, when I’m happy everything’s set up and checked, I look around and I snap them up things which catch my eye,

Dartmouth Castle on a beautiful Summer evening is a target rich environment, so, as well as more photographs from The Inn Theatre’s Production of “The Taming of The Shrew” here’s some bonus material.

The Paddle Steamer is Kingswear Castle, as is the fortification on the Kingswear side of the river.

Dartmouth ILB in action

The Dart Inshore Lifeboat – Spirit – added another shout to her honour roll last night

Whilst readying for the opening night of The Inn Theatre Company’s production of “The Taming of the Shrew” I noticed two cars heading up Castle Road at what seemed to be reckless speed. Would they stop before they hit the barriers which show that the Castle Car park is closed… when they did, sky-blue boiler-suited coastguards erupted from the cars and sprinted toward Castle Cove. The reason soon evident. A small craft had called for aid. Lost power and was at risk, but already being attended to by the crew of the RNLI’s Dartmouth ILB.

I’ll Park where-ever I want

Spotted on Saturday 26th. This pleasant fellow cut in front of the Dittisham Ferry to park on the Town Quay. When told he couldn’t do so by one of the other ferries his considered response was “Who’s going to stop me”. Dittisham Ferry had to go full astern to avoid collision and then stand off until this twit got the message and left the Quay.

Perhaps DHNA have the means to advise this helmsman of his responsibilities SSR 17226
