The river Exe is fascinating, especially if you are lucky enough to watch it from a good vantage point. We were able to do this and watch as the river emerged from a thick mist into glorious sunshine.

Starting between Exmouth and Dawlish, going up through Topsham and Exeter. Great walk with plenty of restaurants and facilities going up the river. There are also boat trips you can get on, which I might give ago next time.
