We had a nice afternoon tea on their huge back patio overlooking their natural pool and wonderful acre of forest garden. They have many hobbies. Bill sings in a choir and loves his Irish songs. Here he serenades his wife of 50 years. Their five children were among the guests.
We both forgot our camera's and had to use our phones.
Both well into their seventies, they have done a lot of adventure tours and trekking. A few months ago they were trekking in Nepal. Ruvé climbed to the first base of Mt Everest. A few years ago she climbed to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro. Poor Bill has had operations on his feet over the past year and this has slowed him down a little.
Blogging friend, Titania from ''Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow in my Garden"also celebrated her 50th Wedding Anniversary this week. What an inspiration these two couples are!
