Woo Hoo! Iconic waterfront. Magnificent natural amphitheater. It's going to be awesome.

I say, steady on, it's England, donchaknow. It's more an agreeable waterfront and pleasant bay.


Oh sorry. I've been in America too long. Didn't mean to sound pushy. Excuse me. Sorry. Didn't mean to offend, Quite nice beach actually. Not too bad really. Sorry.

I heard that Torbay was going to be involved.

Shame, I'd have loved to see the Olympics come here.
