One of the bars around Torquay Harbour hired a singer to frighten away the crowds, sorry that should have been, to entertain the crowds. Unfortunately for those of us who spent any time in Harbour area this afternoon we had to endure this noise for hours and hours. I took the shot at least 200 yards away from the singer and yet he can be clearly heard. If one of my neighbours was playing music that loud everyone in the street would be banging on his door. If he is there next time I am in the Harbour I think I will find out where exactly he is performing and go and ask who ever is paying him to stop paying him in the hope that he will go away or at least go inside and turn the volume down. Sitting by the Harbour watching the boats bob up and down should be a quiet experience. It was a bit like being near a bus waiting time with it's engine running, you just hope the driver will switch the engine off or drive away and the relief when the noise does stop is almost overwhelming. What made it worse was a couple of minutes after the video was taken he announced that he had come to the end of his torture, sorry show. He then thanked just about everyone except President Bush and then lurched into his finale, a rendition of "My Way" that took over 6 minutes. Frank Sinatra has a lot to answer for and would have been turning in his grave.
Students, English language students. Actually it isn't their fault that 300 of them all arrived in Bank Lane Brixham at about 11:40 this morning and all expected to get on the first bus that turned up and were upset that they couldn't. Who organised this stupidity needs to ask themselves a few simple questions like how many people can get on one bus? If buses run every ten minutes and can carry 90 passengers how long will it take to shift 300 people? And how will the people who uses buses everyday feel when they turn up and have to wait 40 minutes to get on a bus to go to work or shop just because the language schools can not understand these simple facts.
