River Dart glimpses

Driving along the winding Devon roads the river Dart catches the eye as you pass by. Eventually we found a place to stop , scramble down and investigate the river.

Shallow and fast flowing with rapids and waterfalls the dart races by. The trees and plants, roots and moss make a magical feel to the river banks.

The first bank we scrambled down was obviously full of water in the winter and when there is heavy rainfall Liverworts were covering the rocks.

This river is home to otters and dippers , we didn’t encounter any today. We did have a great visit to the otter sanctuary near by which was fantastic

The river Dart was with us throughout this Devon trip . At Dartmouth it meets the sea , seagulls were busy feasting on flying ants and fish and chips !!
