It’s our 8th wedding anniversary today! For someone that was NEVER getting married again (that would be me), I’m amazed – getting married didn’t ruin a great relationship at all! Plus without David, I would have never gotten to realize my dream of going cruising! Of course, we long distance dated for well over 10 years before we decided to tie the knot. 🙂
Suffice it to say if it hadn’t been for leaving the US to go cruising, crossing the gulf stream to Isla Mujeres — being attacked by not only the pots and pans but all the frigid ice water from the cooler we foolishly didn’t tie down — we might not be married today!
The featured photo is from our 2nd anniversary at Glover’s Reef Atoll in Belize and the photo to the left is from Josh Caye/Graham’s Place, Bay Islands Honduras and our very first anniversary. Of course, we were hoping to enjoy a nice dinner at Graham’s Place for our anniversary, but Graham never got back with the food, so there was a fun little beach restaurant, a great chef, and no food…. so we returned to the boat and turned some shrimp left from our last visit to a shrimp boat to a fabulous easy shrimp scampi — gotta be flexible! 🙂
Cheers! Do you have any fun stories about your first (or subsequent) anniversaries while cruising? Please post a comment and share! Jan & David
