Mountbatten Fort and Breakwater

Just time for a quick walk this afternoon. The hope was to dodge between the showers and stay dry, this was pretty much accomplished and with the added sunshine it made for a nice half an hour. Hopefully I can get out onto Dartmoor tomorrow (Sunday) although the forecast is pretty poor.

A peek through the trees at the boats in Mountbatten Mariina with Lee Moor the hill in the far distance (where I was last week)

Rounding the corner we see a rain shower passing over Plymouth Hoe with the Citadel to the right

The helicopter was circling to land in the Citadel, whilst the poer boats coasted around the breakwater before blasting off into Plymouth Sound!
