The Pregnant Lady of Ilfracombe

We managed to spend a week at the lodge in Devon. We bought a fabulous picture by David Chambers, the Devon artist, which is now hanging over the front room mantlepiece. We have re-arranged the mantlepiece since taking the photo.

Hauling in the life-boat
We spent a day in Ilfracombe which is a fabulous seaside town. We will have to return in the summer. The reason for going was to look at the Damien Hirst sculpture of the pregnant lady. i am not sure what it "means'. It is certainly an impressive work and is the best Hirst piece of art that I have seen. It is also one of the few that I like.

Pregnant lady - they are still completing the ground works

 It is still a working harbour with a small fishing fleet
