Country Kids: In The Castle

Today is our 11th wedding anniversary and we decided to take The Boy to see our wedding venue.

After we'd examined all the marvellous spiral staircases and hidden doorways, then marvelled at the towers and turrets, we decided to explore the fake moat (it's halfway up Caerphilly mountain, there's no way that the moat wouldn't have drained away. Plus Castell Coch was a folly for the Marquis of Bute and is full of decorative extras that have never had a function: drawbridge and moat being two of them) and splash in the puddles which were attempting to fill it up.

    Happy anniversary love. What a breathtaking venue, and so glad you enjoyed going back. We just had our 10th anniversary on the 1st November, and we went for a meal at the castle hotel where we said our vows. I know how lovely it is to reminisce like that x

    Happy Anniversary! Wow what an impressive Castle for a Wedding, such a shame it tipped down for you all day but delighted to see your special place and it looks like the boy was happy dressed up in his best rain gear. I must say all my waterproofs were useless against the downpour of today. Thank you for linking up.
