Our Special Day and A New Walk

26 Aug

It’s our 53rd Wedding Anniversary today! Three years ago, our four kids made this cd for us having trawled all our friends and family for songs that reminded them of us or us of them and they collected two cds worth including songs from the kids themselves and all with such lovely memories and messages. We’ve been playing them all day and throughout Β our special dinner. The picture is from Cornish Bird in the Sticks and was specially commissioned for my 70th birthday and then added to by Kate, the artist, when LiveWires 5 and 6 arrived together.

We would have loved to have gone to St Ives today as that is where we spent our honeymoon 53 years ago but it is too full of visitors this year so we went on a new walk setting off from Gwennap Church, the graveyard that contains the Martin stone that inspired my Dad to write his best known novel, Jeremy Visick. It was such a lovely, peaceful walk with stile after stile to climb over and a long distance view of the cottage on Sunny Corner where Mum and Dad lived for many years and holding so many lovely memories. Join us on along the way.

    Congratulations on your 53rd! What a lovely walk, with your daughter and one Live Wire. It was fun taking the walk with you and to see Chimneypots again. xoxo

    Congratulations on your 53 years together. We have our 54th coming up this year. It’s so good to have found the right partner to go though life with, isn’t it? Looks like you had a beautiful walk and I love the CD for your 50th. 😍

      The stiles were a scramble but I coped and was quite pleased with myself! πŸ™‚

    Meant to ask: When you went to St Ives, did you ever meet a man on the way with seven wives ?

    Happy 53rd. That’s a good innings, and still batting strong by the sound of it!

      Still batting strong indeed! We didn’t meet the man! πŸ™‚

    Hope you had a lovely Wedding anniversary. Your wonderful walk together was surely better than a full St. Ives. It looks great!
