WATER.

This blog is the first I have done for a few weeks due to a family bereavement. We are just about starting to get every thing back together again. So for anyone who has has borne with me and no blogs recently this one is for you. Its content is about water, we love water, whether that be Sea, Lake, River or stream we have a fascination for it. In my Computer picture section I have over 1200 images and I bet 140-150 of those contain shots with water in them.Please bear with me if the text attached to these pictures isn't 100% accurate as I did not always keep notes on them.
Please do click on any picture to enlarge it.
This one of Autumn is from Dartmoor.
The picture below was taken this year from the middle road bridge at Lynmouth.
This one below was again Lynmouth, this time taken looking up the river Lyn from the village.
Below a tiny summer stream, taken on the road up from "Buckland in the moor", last Autumn.
This picture below was taken if my memory serves me correctly in "Lorna Doone" country, ("Doone Valley").
The picture below was also taken on a ride into the "Doone Valley" showing a lovely old Forde, which was originally the only road.
This beautiful part of Dartmoor is a favourite motorbike ride haunt of ours (below),we spend many happy hours here in the peace and quiet of the stream, a cuppa and a sarnie our jackets to sit on, a book to read, what more could you wish for.The bridge is situated on Exmoor close to the village of "Withypool.
Below, this is the first of two taken at Dartmeet which lies on the road down to Lynton & Lynmouth.
Ourselves and some friends did the walk from here following the River Lyn down into Lynmouth, it was done as a blog earlier this year" Watersmeet Revisited".
I do hope i havn't bored you with these photographs, i hope soon to do a blog on the great Lynmouth overland lifeboat rescue.
Joke of the day.

Morris returns from the doctor and tells his wife
that the doctor has told him that he has only 24 hours to live.
Given the prognosis, Morris asks his wife for sex.Naturally, she agrees, so they make love.
About 6 hours later, the husband goes to his wife and says,"Honey, you know I now have only 18 hours to live.
Could we please do it one more time?"
Of course, the wife agrees, and they do it again.
Later, as the man gets into bed, he looks at his watch and realizes that he now has only 8 hours left He touches his wife's shoulder and asks,
"Honey, please... just one more time before I die."She says, "Of course, Dear," and they make love for the third time.
After this session, the wife rolls over and falls to sleep.
Morris, however, worried about his impending death, tosses and turns, until he's down to 4 more hours.He taps his wife, who rouses. "Honey, I have only 4 more hours. Do you think we could...".. At this point the wife sits bolt up and says,

"Now listen Morris, I do have to get up in the morning...... you don't."

Good afternoon, sorry to hear about your family going through a bereavement. It can be hard. I lost my nephew on Oct. 18, he had just turned 43, truck accident which was not his fault.

I want to thank you for the jokes you and your wife have sent me and also for stopping by my blog.

Lovely pictures, Bob. I love the rivers and streams on Exmoor. I've picniced by the Lorna Doone bridge, and is that ford in Malmsmeade?
It's time I visted my old haunts again, I was in England this summer but didn't get as far west as Devon.

Gday Bob,Beautifil Photo's, I love them all but if I had to Pick one it would be the 1st one with the trees reflecting in the water, I find water very calming to just sit and listen to the trinkling of a fountian in a pond or a water moving in a stream...
Take time to heal.
Bob & Sue . Regards Jen

Hi Bob, Hi Sue,
Wow, Water always seems so serene to me, even at High Force in winter... I still find it calming.
I love your photographs, every one of them has something very special about it.
I have a couple of great pics of my daughter and I sat on the old Clapper Bridge at Dartmouth, dangling our feet as the water trickles benouth our dangly legs. (Always brings a smile to my face)

Hi Bob and Sue,
Your photos are absolutely stunning, but how could anyone go wrong with that scenery? I have several friends (Aussies) who keep going back to England for holidays because they reckon there is so much to see and do there.
When I look at your photos (and those on other Pommy blogs) I can understand why they keep returning!
