Last weekend it was our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we celebrated by retracing our footsteps from such a long time ago! First of all we visited the Walled gardens at Littlebredy and enjoyed a cream tea in these beautiful surroundings.
As regular readers will remember the Head Gardener's cottage was my first home in Dorset, (you can just see the roof top above the walled garden) and from where I left home to get married. See my previous post the walled garden.
The walled garden was not as pretty then as it is now, as the plants were mainly fruit and vegetables. . It is so lovely that the garden is now open to the public at selected times and we can still visit this special place.
Here am I sitting in the same spot all those years ago with one of our previous dogs called Brandy.
Back to the present day!
We then visited the village church where we were married.
We spent our honeymoon in the neighbouring county of Devon. It is a county we have visited so many times over the years and we couldn't resist returning back to Devon for one night's break.
The orginal hotel at Buckfastleigh has been converted into flats, so we chose another location close to Dartmoor and enjoyed a walk along one of the beautiful Dartmoor rivers.
Tavi came along too, although he wasn't as well behaved as this dog that was sitting so patiently outside a icecream and dairy shop!
We should have known that taking a nine month dog with us would not be a bed of roses! We couldn't be angry and had to laugh at some of his antics, even though the smell was not to our choosing!
Do you return to the same place or special occasions too?
