IMG_7541After a four and a half hour journey we finally made it back down to Totnes in Devon . Carolyn was more than impressed with our hire car which was a new Rav 4. We had booked a Vauxhall Insignia but Enterprise car hire kindly gave us a free upgrade. We always use Enterprise as they do a pick up and drop off service which saves us a lot of hassle in trying to get to the hire base.

IMG_7534While in Totnes we had a stroll along the River Dart and just behind us is the mooring we had for our boat when we lived here. It was a club mooring where we were members for nearly 18 years.

IMG_7542The reason for our visit back to Totnes was to celebrate my Mum and Dads Diamond wedding Anniversary .The picture above was taken 60 years ago when they got married at Bridgetown Church in Totnes.

IMG_7525On the day of their Anniversary Mum and Dad ,Children ,Grandchildren and great granddaughter and all their partners went out for an evening meal at Bickeleigh mill near Newton Abbot. We all had a brilliant time meeting up with each other and enjoying the fine food and drink.

IMG_7552A couple of days later and my bestest Sister in the World ,Sharon and her henpecked husband (cutting wit,not Sarcasim) Philip held a BBQ Party at their house for family and friends to come and celebrate our parents Anniversary. Another great night was had by all and it was so good to catch up with family and friends who we have not seen for many years.

IMG_7557Its not that often that the four of us get together like this , so I just had to do this selfie with number one Daughter Chloe and number one Son Jamie. At least you can now see where they both get their good looks from !.

After a few days back down in Devon it will soon be time to hit the road and head back towards North Wales where we will then leave the Llangollen Canal and start the next leg of our Summer cruise.
