Easter in Chagford and Hoo Meavy, Devon - 3rd April 2010

It's off on the epic 350-mile journey down to Chagford in Devon to see Nosher's Sis and brother-in-law. After fighting through the traditional bank-holiday motorway pile-up on the M6 near Birmingham, we make it intact and spend a couple of days hanging out visiting tiny horses at the Miniature Pony Centre near Newton Abbot, drinking some beer and visiting Fred's "Grandma J".
