At the start of August I headed down to Exmouth for the annual naturist boat trip up the River Exe.

I’ve done this quite a few times now, and always still find something slightly different to photograph.
We were fortunate with the tides this year, as we were able to go right up as far as the Princess Weir bridge – as far as the boat is able to go – rather than turning round just after Topsham.

The day after, I took a trip to the Devon Sculpture Park – I don’t think it’s been open that long, as I’d not come across it before. As the crow flies it wasn’t far from Exmouth (you could probably actually see if from where I was staying), but I had to drive all the way up to Exmouth and back down the other side of the estuary to get there – and then it takes a bit of finding as it’s well out of the way.

It’s set in a Capability Brown landscape, which they are “re-wilding”, and the sculptures are scattered around the grounds.

A nice place, definitely somewhere to go back to to see how it develops.
You can actually stay there, which might be rather an interesting experience!
