44 Years ago who would have thought?

We spent our 40th wedding anniversary sitting on the bank of the Congo River

so it was only fitting that we spend our 44th anniversary on an island in the middle of the Nile River.

Off to Wildwaters on the Nile


This might be about like our marriage - a wild ride!


The greeting party -

A cool towel to wipe your brow and a glass of chilled "Passion Fruit Juice" - Hmmmmmm

Home away from home - the Murchison suite




There is a reason this is called Wildwaters. It is surrounded by rapids.

Everything is built up on stilts

A beautiful swimming pool with a deck out over the rapids.


There is you,
and there is me,
There is the water,

and the sun.
And it's our 44th Wedding Anniversary.

Who would have ever thought we would be here in Africa celebrating our anniversary on an island in the middle of the Nile River?

He is the part of a blessed man
left to be finished by such as she,
And she has a fair divided excellence
whose fullness of perfection lies in him.
-William Shakespeare


Happy Anniversary my very favorite person.

Wow! What a great anniversary spot. Isn't it amazing that after all these years we're still learning and growing and having adventures. Aren't we lucky. I think I'd like to spend anniversary 41 like that. Do you think that there's anyplace like that in the Congo? :)
