Ten Tors

Julia spent this last weekend tramping 35 miles across Dartmoor visiting Ten Tors and camping the night on the moor. She was part of a team representing TS Dartmouth and the sea cadets(hence the naval caps!), there were two other teams from  Dartmouth Youth Service, one 35 and one 45. They all did really well and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The only sad part was that team manager Chris Long and his family fly out to New Zealand on tuesday. Chris worked so hard training the kids and he will be sorely missed. 
Bye bye to the Longs, have a great time in New Zealand!               

Approaching the finish line!

After the medal presentation, a pasty awaits!!


Last month we bid a fond farewell to 'Jireh', she has only gone to Brixham, so I'm sure we will see her on the river at sometime.
What has that got to do with the title of my post you may ask?and what is Bugari?
Bugari is the maker of Phil's new piano accordion, partly purchased with the proceeds of Jireh's sale.
Anyone who knows Phil could be forgiven for thinking that he already has plenty of piano accordions! But the number had decreased to 1 (well 2 if you count the 12 bass model which the girls asked him to keep in case they wanted to learn!?@?), anyway the new accordion arrived, had its first professional outing at the Dart Music festival and is giving Phil lots of pleasure!

Concentration is essential when trying a new instrument!
