24th – 26th March

Motorcycling and exploring in Devon, Dorset and Somerset (mostly in Devon!). I stayed for two nights at the excellent Hope Cove near Salcombe and on the Saturday took in Kingsbridge, Torcross, Slapton Sands, Dartmouth, Kingswear, Brixham, Paignton, Torquay, Babbacombe and the excellent RSPB reserve at Labrador Bay where I was able to see the endangered Cirl Bunting followed by a quick trip to Teignmouth before returning to Hope Cove.

On the Sunday, I largely retraced my ride to Teignmouth with the added detour of Prawle Point (a very remote spot) before heading on to Dawlish, Dawlish Warren, the fringes of Exeter, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, West Bay, Burton Bradstock, Abbotsbury, Weymouth and Portland. The final leg home was via Dorchester and Cerne Abbas (home of the naked hillside giant). Whilst in Babbacombe on the Saturday, I was able to suss out an upcoming dive weekend in Babbacombe Bay and over the whole weekend it was “an experiment” in motorcycle photojournalism.
