April 4th, 2013 was one of the first WoollyMuses’ posts and it was about our 26th wedding anniversary.
Five years of Woolly posts and MGW and I are back to celebrate our 31st anniversary.
After a quiet day, maybe in the garden or shed we are booked in for dinner for two in Geelong this evening. On April 12th we are going out for dinner again on the Q Train which is a three-four hour rain ride around the local area in a private cabin.
In the five years since the first Woolly posts we have travelled quite a bit…twice to Africa and once to Europe together. I made a return trip to France and Belgium’s World War I Battlefields last year, and we have plans to visit Canada ans Alaska this year.
This year we also spent a weekend in Auckland, yes a weekend, leaving home at 0530 Friday, dinner on Friday night in Auckland, engagement party for Number 1 Son Saturday night, home in our own abode by 1830 Sunday night. Probably would n’t do that again! However, we are planning on a few days in NZ. before the wedding later in the year at which time we will have our second daughter-in-law. The first daughter-in-law arrived late in 2016.
In 2015 my place of work decided I was no longer required which was frustrating for a few weeks, until I realised that I did not need to worry about security anymore. I spent the last six years of my working life teaching inmates computer skills in a maximum security prison.
As life progresses we find ourselves not wanting for material things, rather these days it is experiences together.
So on our 31st Wedding Anniversary (where has the time gone?) I can only wish my beloved, (and best friend) a happy anniversary and here’s to many more.
Black and White Tuesday
I have been wanting to visit this jetty for several months.
I had one aborted attempt a few weeks ago,
however, last week I found where it was,
about 20 kilometres further on than anticipated
and headed off early for some sunrise photos.
Things still did not go to plan.
I am sure I have seen photos of the sun rising
along the length of the old jetty.
I wasn’t meant to take sunrise photos that day.
Apart from a dense cloud bank blocking out
any form of light until well after sunrise…
, the jetty is actually point to the You Yang Ranges
which are on the north-west/ish side of Corio Bay.
Therefore the sun was rising at around
ninety degrees to the right of this jetty.
Better luck next time.
Graphics card playing up again this evening.
Apologies if photos not sharp.
Hope you enjoyed.
