If you read Wednesday's blog post you noted that in the opening paragraph I referred to August 29th as our 47th wedding anniversary. Over the first 37 years we rarely focused a lot of attention on anniversaries, birthdays, or even Valentine's Day. Instead we attempted to make every day of our lives together important. We did go out for dinner once every two, or three years, but there was nothing regular. Our goal each day was to wake up thinking of what we might do to make the other's life better. However, about 10 years ago we began to celebrate our wedding anniversary each and every year, usually by going to a really expensive, high end restaurant, we take time out during that special day to spend time thinking and talking about our life together, and sharing memories that stand out to each of us. It has been a good life together, and neither of us can imagine our lives without the other.
We started out our anniversary day with a drive over to the picnic area at Seawall. There is no sand beach there, but there is shade, and numerous picnic tables. If you get there early enough you can snag a picnic table, but we brought our beach chairs just in case. At Seawall you have a lovely view of the entrance to Southwest Harbor, and can see the lobster boats moving in and out of the harbor.....
We were on our way home by 7:30 after 2 wonderful hours spent in this wonderful, local restaurant. I cannot imagine a better experience! And that was our 47th wedding anniversary day.
Thanks for stopping by!
