    Another trademark packed weekend away. This time we stayed in Dartmouth, South Devon. A very pretty place on the Dart estuary with lots going on and a ridiculous number of hills!
    NB all photos have been tweaked to some extent; mostly just my LX100 preset applied in LR but a few also in Color Efex Pro. I've added "CEP" to the description if they were 'Nik'd'

    First we stopped at Killerton House near Exeter: nice landscapes around the house (CEP)

    the church had some good carvings:

    Then Dartmouth...this is one of the hills we had to walk up and down into town: (NB this is a rogue TZ60 photo!!) (CEP)

    There was a rowing race going on in the river one afternoon:

    This isn't an accident...the ferry has to push the raft over the river against the flow of the tide. Still looks a bit hair-raising to me!

    A view from further down the river back towards Dartmouth. The swan is the prow of a boat stored in the garden of the house :)

    Coleton Fishacre was the country house of the D'Oyly Carte family...

    The growth in the garden was stunning for early April, and the views spectacular:

    Interesting old kitchen stuff in the house:
