Plymouth Aquarium and the Barbican, Devon - 10th June 2012

It's time for a trip to Devon, so Fred can see his rellies in Chagford and Spreyton and everyone can get to meet Harry the baby, a.k.a Mister Cheese. After a night at a Holiday Inn outside Exeter and another with Sis and Matt in Chagford, we decide on the spur of the moment to get a hotel room on Coxside, opposite Sutton Harbour and the Barbican in Plymouth. From there, we explore the nearby National Aquarium and the rest of the Barbican, before returning to Chagford via a drive over the moor.
