Scene at Teignmouth, with a figure looking out to sea leaning up against a beacon

This drawing shows a view across the beach at Teignmouth looking east towards Holcombe Point (just left of the beacon). Teignmouth had become an increasingly genteel watering place in the early 19th century, partly because it was a pleasant and temperate place where naval officers' families could stay in the hope that they might see husbands and fathers involved in the blockade of Brest, during the French wars to 1815. For in bad weather, the Channel fleet sometimes took shelter in Torbay, just to the west, off Brixham. The small town developed to accommodate such visitors. A few naval men retired there. Mends presumably did this drawing while on leave or half-pay, just before receiving his commission to join the 'Trafalgar' at Sheerness, as her first lieutenant.
