Easter Tour – Day 5 – A Easter Sunday to cherish

Today has been a fantastic Easter Sunday. While it is snowing back in Kent, in Devon we have had the first signs of actual sun. In fact the weather was so temperate that we even made it to the beach in Sidmouth. It actually felt, at least for today, like a proper holiday. I think that we can be a little complacent about how beautiful the rich tapestry of scenery we possess as a nation, and Devon has some of the best.

I suppose that we really have to admit to not a great deal happening today on the buying British front. However, we did start our day by going to a local garden centre and petting some day old chicks. I can tell you nothing is going to get you more in an Eastery mood. We also set up an Easter egg hunt with a combination of British goodies from House of Dorchester and Chococo. The kids loved it but we hid some of the eggs so well that we are sure only about half were found!

Anyway, after spending 3 nights with family we are going to be hitting the road again tomorrow. But we are not going far, Newton Abbott only about 40 minutes away. We have heard some mixed reviews of the town so we are not entirely sure as to what to expect. If you have any good suggestions as to what we can see while there please let us know.
