We've just returned from 4 nights in Tavistock Devon, the main reason for going was to attend the 60th birthday party of a friend I started my nurse training with in Plymouth back in 1975!!  Where have the years gone I ask myself.  sue has also taken the opportunity to retire, well semi retire to be exact.

Although I've been to 'Tavy' many times over the past 40 years I  never realised what a wonderful place it was until this weekend.  There is so much to see and do. I think Sue and her husband are very lucky to live where they do.  Although Sue and I keep in touch, because of the distance we don't see each other as much as we would like.  I'm looking forward to being able to see more of Sue and Glenn in the future!!

Joe and I also managed to pull in a visit to an old haunt of our, Badgers Holt where we had a lovely Devon cream tea.  The place hasn't changed much. There were several Peacocks their all strutting there stuff!!

This is the card I made for my friend

The weekend weather was lovely, I only needed to where a cardigan too.  The Queen Head Hotel we stayed at was in the heart of Tavistock and was an exellent find.  I checked out trip advisor before I booked it and they were all glowing about it.  the hotel more than met our expectations.  I would certainly stay there again and recommend it as a place to stay.

What a beautiful card. I love it.
Sounds like you have a great time, but with a full tea, who wouldn't have a good time.
