To the west of the main seafront at Exmouth is the Exe estuary, it’s been a favourite place of mine since childhood and I’ve posted many photos taken there. Every couple of weeks a friend picks me up from work, and its become a habit on summer evenings to head to the coast, for fish and chips, a paddle and a Pimms on the balcony at the Grove. On Thursday we managed the paddle and fish and chips but the pub balcony was full, so we kept walking towards the marina.
This used to be a scruffy, but fascinating, working dock, now the apartments here are very expensive. I’m torn between thinking I’d like to live there and thinking its all a bit sterile and elitist.
Leave the apartments behind for a while and enjoy the view.
Across the estuary towards Dawlish Warren.
The tide was very high on the remains of the beach where I used to play, the blue moon was on its way.
There’s still some fishing work taking place, thank goodness.
and a lot of blue.
as the sky and buildings fight for the boldest colour.
Turn the last corner, here is the bridge that replaced the rickety one I remember, and the sun shined on, a perfect Devon evening.
