The year's first big test for the region's tourism industry has been passed with few complications.
The Easter weekend kickstarts the main season. But despite the early holiday, and a large Atlantic storm passing through, all seems to have gone well.
It's perhaps too early to suggest the tourist season has started swimmingly, but despite a rotten forecast heading into the weekend, the tourist industry is heading out of Easter having kept its head above the water.
At the beach, it's breezy but bright. A popular place to clear cobwebs and chocolate eggs.
There have been showers, but more sunshine than many expected.
The Easter weekend is seen by many as the traditional start to the summer tourist season. With a long weekend and 2 Bank Holidays, a good Easter weekend can set the industry up well for the year ahead.
In Exeter, crowds have come to the Quay to make the most of the sunshine. Easter has fallen early, but tourism businesses hope that simply extends the season.
An early Easter does bring a bonus of sorts. It's still at least 2 weeks before its back to school, so the holiday fun has only just begun.
