Opening up Ilfracombe harbour views from Hillsborough

As well as uncovering its ancient historic past as a hill fort, the work clearing vegetation from Hillsborough is making it easier to appreciate different views of Ilfracombe, North Devon, especially the harbour.

We were up there this afternoon in glorious sunshine and, luckily, had my camera with me. I should have taken a tripod as a northerly wind off the sea made it difficult to hold the camera steady. Nevertheless I hope these photos give an idea . . .

It’s good to see construction of steps to make the paths easier to climb. All in all, it is making Hillsborough not only more interesting, but even more enjoyable for residents and visitors alike.

Crisp, snap, spray & quack

Such a beautiful day, although the ducks in Bicclescombe Park this morning did not too lively and one stared me out . . .

How do they manage to withstand the flow of water?

Everything seemed so sharp and the trees stood majestically in the sunlight . . .

Later on, as the sun went down, it became chillier and greyer, but still clear enough to snap views of Ilfracombe and the fishing boats in the harbour from up Hillsborough . . .

As I went up a hill this morning . . . #ilfracombe #ndevon #travel

. . . I saw the sunrise from Hillsborough in Ilfracombe and took some photos as it was a beautiful morning . . .

Then I came down the hill the other side, overlooking the town, harbour and St Nicholas Chapel and lighthouse, which is the oldest working lighthouse in the UK . . .
