25 years married

We don't normally celebrate wedding anniversaries, for various reasons, mainly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with this man & didn't need a piece of paper to proove it (isn't that what the guy usually says?!) But married we got & just to say having repeated my vows after a priest in a beautiful church on a truly lovely day I believe & have kept every one of them....well, maybe I've gotten a little cross & impatient now & then ;)




25 years is pretty impressive, no? Not forgetting the 5 yrs, 1 month & 23 days that came before....of course - there wouldn't have been a knot to tie without them.

I've no idea why my 'and' words aren't coming out right...oh well ;)

We planned lunch in the UK's most remote pub The Old Forge Inn

 

We could have got a trip on a RIB & gone screaming across the Sound but I fancied the ordinary CalMac ferry followed by a trip on the Knoydart Ferry.


A Tern above - can you see it? by Armadale, where you get the ferry. Birds just never fly right in front of me!

Busking at Mallaig 1/2 hr from Armadale - not a desperately salubrious spot, but at least he's trying ;) No I haven't altered the sky, just used 'auto correct' ! Couldn't have been better weather.


Organised graffitti showing repairing fishing nets

Real net  repair

A clete?

lots of old rope - ooh, I just want to dive right in!

On the way to the next ferry we saw these 2 guys struggling to get this bulls head back in the truck, well one guy hardly even moves - he's really holding onto the nose ring there!

Clinbing down to the ferry you look under the new pier to part of the old pier - out of focus but stunning down there. I could have explored for ages if I'd brought my tripod.

 quite ethereal


knobs on the boat


the anchor at the front - got a bit vertiginous here!


another fabulous part of the boat, not sure what it is tho, I'm just being arty farty ;)


Well,  that's 15 plus pics & we haven't left yet, I'll show you more next week if you're still with me!

Congratulations on 25 years, Emma! Although I do know what you mean about not needing a piece of paper to prove you're with a person for good -- Mr. Sequin and I have a wedding anniversary and a "real" anniversary, which is our first date. :)

Maggi said...

Many congratulations Emma. Fantastic photos. Bet you were glad that they finally managed to get that bull back in to where he should have been.

Well, you little whipper-snapper! Congrats! on our 25th last year we looked at each other and said, WHAT?! It really is amazing isn't it?
These photos had me smiling too much. I don't use those muscles enough maybe? I don't know. But I do know that anyone who can use the word salubrious in her post is okie dokie by me!
