That time when the bride wore white and so did the groom!

An ancient old tree on the Frome River in the Flinders Ranges

Weathering life As the Mathematician and I celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary, I thought back to how we've weathered life along the way.

Worth a Word Wednesday: A Fijian sunset

Sunset in Fiji

 Wordless Wednesday - also known as Worth a Word Wednesday Bula! Our final night in Fiji was bittersweet. The sunset on our final night in Fiji was spectacular, which sums up our whole trip really!!
