The Beauty of Dartmoor in pictures.

This then is a blog all about Devon's wonderful Dartmoor. These pictures were taken recently on a trip up to the Postbridge area, mostly around the Bellever Forest region.
Apologies about the amount of pictures here but we are just off back to the Caravan for a week, so this was a quickie.
Please do click on any picture to enlarge it.

Sue demonstrating just how narrow some of these road bridges are up here !!!!.

Thanks to all you who are still reading this blog, even though i don't blog as often as i should.
Joke of the day.

Men Are Just Happier People--
Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack.
You can never be pregnant.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
The world is your urinal.
You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks and engines. A ten-day vacation requires
only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

Your underwear is £8.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.

You never have strap problems in public.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
Everything on your face stays its original colour.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
You can play with toys all your life.
One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one colour for all seasons.
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.
You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a moustache.
You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.
No wonder men are happier.

Hi Bob and Sue,
Just been catching up on your travels...glad you two are okay! I was wondering if you were, when you hadn't been here for a while. Photos are fabulous, as usual. I am surprised to see Dartmoor is so scenic. I always imagined it to be very bleak, after hearing a tale my father told me about 50 years ago. A friend of his was in the RAF, and one night he was driving across Dartmoor, on his own in the car. A huge pair of hairy arms came from behind his seat and dragged the steering wheel out of his hands, causing him to crash. When he woke up in hospital, the police asked him what happened and he said "You won't believe me". They said "yes we do, it's happened before".
OMG!!!!!!! I had nightmares for months after that!! Is it true??

I loved the pics! I have such great memories of Dartmoor! What happened to the bridge Bob? Last time we were there it was still ok and we were able to walk over it. (2007 I think)
