June 15, 1973

Forty years .....
what a journey!
We have been blessed
in so many ways.

Fast forward to June 15, 2013....
We celebrated in Tofino, BC
with a stroll on the beach,
a fun day downtown,
watching the fishermen bring in loads
of fresh salmon,
a 4 hour kayaking trip,
and a delicious late night dinner at Schooners.

Seafood Chowder lunch with Corn Bread
at Sobo's

A stroll on the beach
The kayaks

In 1973 we paddled our canoe in Algonquin Park.
40 years later we paddled a kayak in Tofino's Inlet!
No too bad for two old folks.

Till next time - we're off to Vancouver.


  1. Where are the old folks? I don't see any! What a cute couple you were then AND now.

  2. Congratulations on 40 years!! I remember your wedding day like it was ... a couple years ago?? We had a six month old, and John had just started working for Erb Transport. Blessings to you both! Juanita

  3. Congrats you guys, check out the hair on that dude! I remember having hair like that once! How was the kayaking? I love kayaking, did I mention that I love kayaking?

    Cheers from the Great White North

    1. I think you mentioned this once or so :) and we thought of you John!! It was wonderful and our kayaks were really great! Tell Diane that the sun shone the whole time we were in Tofino....

  4. Congratulations on forty years of marriage! We celebrated forty years last December- and my husband had a big mustache just like your husband did. Must have been the styling way. Your celebration looked just perfect. Fun.

  5. Oh my goodness! I have been offline for more than two weeks, back and forth to Edmonton due to the birth of twins. I completely missed learning that you would be on the Island. Congratulations on your fortieth! You have celebrated in wonderful style! I'd love to have met you - I'm back on Edmonton this weekend. Enjoy the rest of your anniversary trip!

  6. Happy Anniversary,and here's to 40 more! What a wonderful, memorable celebration!

  7. A very Happy 40th Anniversary to the two of you. Looks like you are made the most of it. I'm glad you got away to celebrate.

  8. I love seeing your wedding picture Rosella. Such a beautiful bride. What a great way to celebrate your anniversary. Who's old? Not you that is for sure!

  9. Forty years just flew by didn't they?
    I love your bridal gown!

  10. Happy anniversary! You were a stunning bride! Beautiful.

  11. Happy Belated Anniversary! I can't get over how much you look like Becky :-) Love the photo ... beautiful!
