Yeatheridge Devon

Journey number two was a rally organised by wifeys cousin Kim (CC Avon Centre) our fourth visit, and arrived safely after negotiating some very narrow country lanes! Greeted on arrival with "William & Kate" union jack bunting, a commemorative bottle of  beer and sparkling wine to celebrate the occasion. The Royal wedding turned out to be very watchable and great fun was had by all. Spent Saturday driving across Dartmoor from Mortenhampstead to Tavistock via Two Bridges and Princetown, famous for its historic prison, dating back to the very earl 1800's. Lunched in the Warren Inn right in the middle of Dartmoor. ordered a veggie meal only because it came with "spicy wedges" but sadly it turned out to be chips. I didnt like to complain as our host was very pleasant and amiable. We experienced some rain during our stay, with one downpour torrential, so bad we had we nearly had to pull over when returning from Dartmoor.  Motor mover on van refused to function on departure which I now believe to be the fault of the switch which operates the battery connection, but I will keep readers (none to date!) informed through the season. The window blind in the door also broke, and despite my sons and wifes patience in trying to fix it looks as though it will have to be replaced. Journey number three is to South Lytchett Manor in Dorset art the end of May.
