I was staying with the c/o while attempting to qualify for, and then find, the Dartmoor Mega Challenge. As I rode my motorbike between qualifying caches I recognised the location, and decided to spare the time from my primary target to find this one [:)].
First shot I saw I was facing the wrong way, so turned round and sorted that outPhoto taken at the same moment I was grabbing the screenshot :-)
Thanks for the cache,

We spotted that this had been published a couple of weeks ago, and decided that we would attempt it on our next visit to family that live nearby.
Before leaving Bristol this morning I checked that we could access the webcam feed and figured out how to save the picture.....and also noticed that it hadn't yet been found.
We took a detour through Tavistock this afternoon and parked nearby. After a very short walk we stopped at the correct spot and soon saved the required screenshots.
Once at my daughter's I powered up my computer, only to discover that we had been pipped to the post for FTF by two of our caching friends.
Congratulations Lisa and Roy.
Thanks to Dartmoor Dave for placing this webcam cache.

It was rather interesting when this cache was published, being a webcam cache, as the same evening I also had a webcam cache approved. They are far and few inbetween and then two come along in the South West at once. This cache sat there quite happily without any visitors, and now and again I would have a look at the cache page only to be surprised there had been no visitors. It was a bit of a last minute decision to come seek out this cache given I've passed nearby quite a few times since its publication.
Tavistock was extremely busy today, and it would appear everyone wanted to visit Tavistock today, even our friends Stefo and Swash, unknowingly to us at the time. Parking was the only issue today, and after visiting a full car park we relocated to another location where the car was left, and we headed off over to the weir. After loading the webcam with ease a screenshot was taken, and we were happy with the result.
This is a great cache, in a lovely location, so thank you Dartmoor Dave for bringing us to a fabulous location today.

Over the last couple of days myself and ChudleighTraveller have noticed this webcam cache is still sitting awaiting it's first visitor and decided it was about time that changed. After all you wait ages for one and two come along at once!
A lovely day in Tavistock but boy wasn't it busy! We spent some time searching around for parking before heading out to the burbs and taking a leisurely walk in to enjoy a visit to the weir then a visit to the panier market and lunch. All suitably festive at the moment :)
Thanks Dartmoor Dave for placing this webcam cache and giving us an excuse to visit today, it's definitely been a nice day!
