My Ship Came In

 

Five years ago today (2007) I met Astrid here on Shutterchance.

Little did I know I'd be married to her 2 years after taking this picture

on Magnetic Island, Australia, in 2008 (from the Unassigned bin) .

 

Happy Boat Friday!

(we're still in America)

Happy Anniversary to us!

Absolutely, Happy Anniversary to us. We went through some rough weather and we finally came into a gentle stream. We are so lucky that we found a great harbour, from where we make many great travels. IHVJ MLS een dikke kus.

Ginnie Hart: We can blame everything on Shutterchance! I love it. Happy Anniversary, mijn vrouw! smile

Magnetic Island seems very appropriate in this case; your attraction to each other. Congratulations to you both. I like the shimmied reflections of the masts and the piles in this.

Although not strictly correct, 5 years makes it your 'wooden' anniversary...

Bet you wooden of thought that would happen!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, wooden it is, then! Good for us since Astrid always was a carpenter. smile
