Our 50th wedding anniversary today brings back many memories. Our wedding wasn’t a fancy one and we started off with very little in the way of worldly goods, but our love has conquered all the difficulties we’ve encountered along the way. We are celebrating together here in Santiago Chile. On Monday we join our Patagonia and Antarctica cruise; yet another adventure, and a chance to make more happy memories. Yesterday we ascended to 10,000′ for lunch in the mountains with our excellent guide.
(No, we didn’t actually climb up there. Mauricio drove us up around 60 hairpin bends, and then of course, what goes up must come down, so we harum-scarumed back down again. We then visited a wine farm, where we fortified ourselves with a few sips of excellent Chilean wine.
We are spending today in the city, just wandering around and taking in the sights. We spoke to both our children and some of our grandchildren this morning, and tonight we will enjoy a delicious dinner whilst reminiscing over all the happy times we’ve had.
I wish you all a very happy weekend.
