|Heading out for some fine dining on Saltspring Island late this afternoon.|
The menu? Ahh, simple: Some homemade pea soup and hot chocolate, heated up on our tiny MSR stove. No point in getting fancy about the food, we're here to paddle!
I ask Joan what she thinks of the idea. (After all, it's a pretty low budget night out.) She doesn't even flinch...which is one of the many (many!) reasons I was a very fortunate guy when this special woman agreed to marry me! :)
|Midway across Sansum Narrows and enjoying a "photo op".|
|You'd think a place with this kind of view would have "valet" parking!|
|Love warms the heart and soul...|
but soup and hot chocolate warms the body,
especially when it's just a couple of degrees above zero!
But mainly, it's just spending life with someone very special.
|39 years ago - a different time, place, and "space". It was fun too!|
So there you have it, paddling to an anniversary dinner and a simple meal, on an isolated beach on a nearby Gulf Island, under clear skies and a bright moon. Romantic...or what? :))
