Celebrating our 14th Anniversary!

Can you believe it? We're amazed too!
Yesterday was Dave and my 14th anniversary of 'two-getherness' (we're so cute!) and we're celebrating with a fortnight away in our trailer tent starting with four nights on a largish campsite at Sheriffhales in Shropshire.

Ted's Caravan and Camping site covers some ten acres and is a neatly mown green field with no defined pitches so there's lots of space. It's beautifully peaceful with practically no traffic noise other than vehicles heading to the campsite or Hunger Hill Farm just over the track. A portacabin houses toilets and showers, and we have both water and electricity points near to our pitch. The site is a little pricey at £20 a night including electricity and I would have liked the shower block to be cleaner for this cost, but the location is ideal for nearby Ironbridge which we are keen to visit. We've visited the Black Country Museum at Dudley - about an hour from here - yesterday and I will blog about that soon.

Our new neighbours at Ted's are a pair of pretty cows and two friendly chickens - at the first hint of any food on offer the birds come running! We also heard and spotted a peacock, but it was too distant to get a good photograph.

Yesterday evening we dined at Shifnal Cottage, an excellent Indian restaurant about a five minute drive from the campsite. There are several Indian restaurants nearby so Dave plumped for this one based on its TripAdvisor rating, proximity, and unusual menu. It certainly didn't disappoint! I had a delicious vegetarian combination platter - smaller portions of Palak Uri Khumbhi Jhool and Dhum Aloo Zeera - and Dave had a lamb Malai Makhani Mawa with a rich coconut sauce laced with paneer. Great food, attentive service and reasonable prices. If you're ever near Shifnal, we highly recommend the Shifnal Cottage restaurant!
