Verity in Ilfracombe

Although I was too busy to take photos at the Vintage Fair last weekend, I did take some on the Monday when I was out and about around the harbour.  It was the most beautiful day and the north Devon scenery was at it's best with all the fresh colours of Spring.

For those of you who have never been to Ilfracombe, it is a delightful little town, and has been given quite an artistic boost lately by the long term loan of Damien Hirst's magnificent statue "Verity" and the opening of his gallery next his restaurant.   Here are some pics..
Standing over 20m high, Verity is an allegory for truth and justice

Ilfracombe is a working harbour for many fishermen

The Waverley docked at the Quay - this is the boat that regularly ferries passengers and cargo to Lundy island
