Growing up, my parents owned a caravan at Devon Cliffs near Exmouth in Devon. I have fond memories of many weekends in this part of Devon and I’ve been there since as a teenager and as an adult with my own children too. Exmouth is a lovely seaside location as it’s not too built up or commercial, it’s quiet, beautiful and doesn’t require a bank loan for car parking. You can also get the ferry across the water from Exmouth to Dawlish Warren for a very reasonable price. I can remember taking that ferry as a rebellious thirteen year old on holiday in Dawlish because my friend’s parents wouldn’t take us to Exmouth – so we went by ourselves!
Regular readers of mine will know how much I love the sea and how I can’t resist a long walk along the beach whenever I am near one. On a recent trip to Exmouth, I spent a glorious hour of solitude walking from one end of Exmouth beach to the other, and back again. Exmouth’s golden sandy beach is approximately 2 miles long, with a well kept promenade full of flowers running alongside it. I unfortunately didn’t have my camera with me, but I just had to take some photos on my mobile phone.
So please excuse the quality of these photos. I’m gutted the colours of the bright blue autumn sky didn’t capture well, as the sun was warm and shining and there wasn’t a cloud in sight. It was a really beautiful day and the sound of the waves gently crashing against the shore both refreshed and invigorated me. I love being by the sea, I think it’s good for the soul… it’s my happy place.
