Yesterday was our 1st Wedding anniversary. We decided to spoil ourselves, and spend it alone. No kids, no dogs, nada. Didn’t go far, only 20 miles up the road to the lovely City of Norwich. Beautiful weather made it all the better.
First in line was Norwich Castle. A little disappointing that neither the battlements or the dungeons were open for viewing it was enjoyable nonetheless and we learnt a little more about the county we call home (sort of).
Then…. to the pub. A spot of lunch whilst waiting for an appt to have a tattoo commemorating the date.
After that, another pub, The Ribs Of Beef, situated on the river, Patrons of which are friends we met on our honeymoon last year in Turkey, Anthea and Roger. Beautiful.
Walking along, just headed past the Cathedral we spied a little open door and decided to take a look. Well I never, an absolutely stunning building, enormous.
We had a brief history lesson from a little old lady, who took the time to tell us about the architecture and the building of the cathedral, and also how the Queen was responsible for the stained glass window being restored to its most colourful glory (a little mistake we hear, but a good one!)
Then, off to the pub….a different one 🙂 we had to be a little choosy as Norwich City had just lost at home to Aston Villa and the place was flooded with fan, and Police.
At the end of a lovely day together we took ourselves to the Thai on the River, a restaurant on a boat. Gorgeous food, great service, a lovely little find.
Happy Anniversary Mr H. xx
P.S. The Q performed admirably! 🙂
