Starting from the west sees the Exmouth lifeboat returning to harbour at speed.
Exmouth has a long sea front, this is part of the eastern end looking west. The town and the mouth of the River Exe are beyond the headland, Dawlish Warren across the water.
Looking east to Orcombe Rocks, the start of the The Jurassic Coast .
A closer view of Orcombe Rocks with the winter sunset accentuating the red of the Devonian sandstone.
A yacht was aground on this sand bar off the river mouth at Exmouth - it refloated on the incoming tide.
A view of another part of the beach at Exmouth.
Looking across the mouth of the Exe to the tip of Dawlish Warren, there's some photos on and from the Warren on the Dawlish page.
There are lots of moorings in the river in the lee of Dawlish Warren.
The entrance to Exmouth Docks - now a Marina.
This part of the harbour is used by fishing boats such as this one landing her catch of whelks.
The dock itself is now a marina surrounded by new flats.
Just across and up the River Exe is Turf lock, where the Exeter Ship Canal joins the river, on the left the lock viewed from the river and on the right boats moored above the lock. There is a pub, the Turf Hotel, by the lock which isn't accessible by road - river, canal or foot are the ways of getting there for a beer.
A view of the Turf Hotel on a very busy Good Friday and another of the boats moored above the lock.
Further up the Exeter Ship Canal there is a passenger ferry across the River Exe to Topsham, this view of Topsham was taken from by the ferry jetty.
The view up the canal from the nearby bridge with more modern transport infrastructure in the distance - the M5 motorway.
