Doug and I do not celebrate St. Valentine's Day in fact it was about lunch time when I remembered. However,  in the evening I found a "Memory" on FB telling me that it was four years since I moved in with Doug.  My house had sold so I moved in and we got married at the beginning of May that year.  Too much to organise the move and wedding at the same time.

Anyway, we both had appointments in town today at 12.30 and 1 p.m. so decided to go out for a meal to celebrate the four years.  We went to the Town Basin.  

It has been a showery day, better than yesterday when it rained all day.  After lunch we went for a walk to the Reyburn House Art Gallery.

The Rain Lillies or Zephyranthes Candida were a real show.  We have some in a pot here but not as thick as these.

Our view as we ate our lunch


  1. And may you have many more years together. Oh how I envy you eating beside the sea.

    1. It is not quite beside the sea, it is the Town Basin, part of the Whangarei Harbour, but it is a large marina where lots of yachts escape the cyclone season and a lovely spot for lunch.

  2. Happy Four Years' Cohabitation, Susan and Doug!

  3. What a wonderful four years you have had! It was definitely a day to celebrate.

  4. Hope you have many more happy years together :)
