Across the River Dart

By TrevBatWCC    
Heading away from Dartmouth's town centre, this is looking out across the River Dart. The lead and V1 are looking towards my private yacht (I wish!) moored on the far side. V2 shows the foot-passenger ferry arriving at Dartmouth from Kingswear on the far side of the river. The Dartmouth Steam Railway runs for 7 miles from Paignton, not to Dartmouth itself as it has no railway system, but to Kingswear, so the ferry is needed not just for visitors, but also for locals to travel between the two resorts. V3 shows Kingswear in the distance, with the landing stage for boats in the foreground. V4 is the 'Cardiff Castle', a passenger service, used mainly on the cruise/ferry route between Dartmouth and Totnes.

Many thanks to Kate (Irishkate), Ian (dales), Ray (ThePixelator), Oliver (bliba) and Isabel (Chinga) for their User Awards on my previous upload, Around Dartmouth town , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Another first class series from this very attractive harbour, Trev.

Well you are retracing our steps a few years ago taking the car across on the ferry which is very different to the one we traveled on a fantastic series which Ive enjoyed very much.

I love the pastel coloured houses in V3 - great to see parts of Devon.
After Cornwall my brother-in-law thought I might like Devon and Somerset too.
It is great to see towns and villages which are thriving.
