it was cloudy on and off in the build-up but got some nice views. Sadly we too were totally clouded out during totality
it was till an amazing experience though. i found it particularly weird just how quickly the light vanished as totality hit.

Even spoke to Zoe Ball in a pub and Michael Burke whilst walking along the Causeway to St Michaels Mount.
Travelled down on the back of my mates' ZZR 1100. Down and back in one day. My legs died by the time we got back to Worcester. Pi**ed it down all day.
Much preferred Turkey in 2006 - sat by the pool in Antalya, sipping a G+T whilst watching the most fantastic eclipse

The main highlight was seeing the shadow race across the sea towards us from the Channel - you could see the dark patch in the distance and then it suddenly hit and light dropped almost instantly! 360 degree sunset/dusk sky was surreal, as were the birds going to roost etc and the temperature drop. Certainly an event I'll never forget.
