Beach weather in October - Slapton Sands pictured by reader Kim Bowden
Devon is basking in temperatures up to 23°C and the unseasonably warm weather is set to continue to midweek.
This is a geography field trip I went on a couple of months ago, but I've only had time to put it all together now. It's all good though and I think it's a really beautiful place for anyone to visit =) Ah, and that song is there because of how often Emily played it...

Fishing on the Skerries Banks I April 2010 I caught this Edible Crab, nothing strange there but this was a female full of eggs I was really shocked later when I done some research to find that they carry up to 20 million eggs at one time !

This tornado (or twister) hit land between East Allington and Slapton Sands on an afternoon in July (19th I think). We first noticed a small double corkscrew appearing in the clouds above us as two storm clouds collided from about 80 degrees to eachother. This corkscrew at the base of the cloud grew and then shrunk in a repeated fashion for about ten minutes. Suddenly we noticed a tornado hitting ground some miles away. Red debris (we assumed this was mud from a field) was sucked up into the sky in a double corkscrew pattern. As we traced the line of travel of the debris the colour of the line changed to grey and led all the way back to the cloud above us. After a few minutes we lost sight of the tornado, but it struck ground again, this time further away from us. At first it has seemed only a few fields away, but when we looked at the map later we realised that it must have been at least a few miles away. We heard no reports of the tornado from anyone else in the area, but a violent hail storm was reported from people who were down near Slapton Sands at the time. Sorry it took so long to post....and for the random comments on the sound track !

On the southern shores of England is Slapton Sands. This beautiful beach area carries a tragic memory from its past. On April 28, 1944, during World War II, Allied soldiers were engaged in Operation Tiger, a training exercise in amphibious beach landings in preparation for the D-Day invasion of Normandy. Suddenly, enemy gunboats appeared and killed over 700 American servicemen in a surprise attack. Today, a monument stands on Slapton Sands to commemorate the sacrifice of those young men who ...

and who massacred the Americans by attacking out of the blue. A dreadful business, as 4 times more Americans died in practice for D-Day (operation Tiger) than on D-Day itself and a day which also saw huge casualties compared to Britain + Canada. Its just amazing how America covers its perhaps less impressive but nevertheless equally as brave and thus as important history up, even at the expense of the memories of it brave citizens who deserve equal recognition to anyone on D-Day itself. The US ...
