Every trip I make to the UK ends up generating an even bigger list of places I'd like to revisit some day. Never mind realizing that there are just as many places I've yet to see that would wow me.
Bovey Tracey was one of those brief stops that made me want to go back for more. This quiet little village is known as one of the gateways to Dartmoor. And what I saw wandering those small streets struck me as the being the epitome of English village life.
The old "Riverside Mill" was particularly charming in my eyes. I didn't have time then to dig into the history of what I was seeing but I've since discovered that even though this is known as the Riverside Mill, it was never really a mill. The water wheel was for moving water to the stables once housed there. Yet it's still called the Riverside Mill. Go figure!
Isn't it quaint though? I loved the soft light falling on the little stream and how everything present took on the hue of green. I still remember standing on the little bridge over the River Bovey and it felt like being in a rich green tunnel. Magical...
