Essential Nature at Bucks Mills

A group of us had a great time exploring Chapel Wood last month whilst Linda was away. Today we arrived at Bucks Mills – a small secluded village further along the rugged North Devon coastline, and surrounded by dense woodland.

After so much torrential rain and dark days, it was good to laze around on the beach, sketching, taking photos and chatting. The tide was coming in, as people came out to relax, and quietly enjoy the warm bright  air.

We viewed a couple of North Devon Arts’ Art Trek exhibitions too. In February you may remember a post here about the Bucks Mills Cabin.

And here’s another one, recounting a walk through the woods from Bucks Mills to nearby Peppercombe , with its red clay seam exposed on the cliff face.

Today, two North Devon artists were showing some most interesting work here, inspired by the Cabin and its history.
Here are more pics and sketches – by EN member Paula Newbery – inspired by our beach interlude today:

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.
