An anniversary stroll along the Broadstairs Boardwalk

(or Promenade as we Britishers call it)

On our first ever date, we decided to ‘do something mad’ and hopped on a train which took us to Broadstairs. It was a wild blustery night and we walked along the beach. We even got engaged ‘officially’ in Broadstairs after a lovely meal at a great restaurant which is sadly now closed and drank champagne on the beach to celebrate. pao had blurted out his proposal several weeks before by a traffic light in Canterbury :)

The council had expanded the promenade since we’d first been there and we took a walk to Dumpton Gap and then along the cliffs afterwards. I’ll shut up now and let the pictures speak for themselves :)

Oh and in case you were wondering what you give someone on their tenth anniversary, check out what I received lucky dip style:

Some of the 12 tins (yes, I know it is our 10th but that is why pao is special :)) I received because it is a tin gift year.


The big tin had a breakfast set in it – pretty nifty.

A super anniversary – looking forward to the next! :)
