Our World, My World


 Hello and Happy Monday.

 Hubby and I are celebrating our ❤️ 30th anniversary today May 4th. It is amazing how fast 30 years go by.  Usually we celebrate our anniversary by going on a trip somewhere. Some of our trips had to be planned before or after our actual anniversary date.  Traveling anywhere now has been put off, so we will celebrate when things are normal again. Happy Anniversary to my hubby, my shadow and my love.




" We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone."
  

For now, I am remembering past trips hubby and I took for our anniversary.  Our honeymoon in 1990 was in Hawaii, we visited the Big Island, Maui and Kauai..below are some scenes from places we visited, we took a helicopter ride in Kauai, the road to Hana was a done a few times, we saw so many waterfalls, a hike through a bamboo forest, visited the Hawaii Volcano National Park, Kauai's Grand Canyon, black sand beaches and more.



I am skipping ahead to 2010, our 20th Anniversary and one of my favorite places, Chincoteague Island Va..  In late March 2010 we went to Costa Rica  and in Sept 2010 we drove a loop around the Cascades Washington State.



 In 2011, a short anniversary trip was to Cape May NJ and Atlantic City NJ.  This trip included beach walks and lots of birding at Cape May and Edwin Forsythe NWR. In Nov 2011 we went on a week long trip to Panama





 In 2012,  our trip was to the island of Curacao. You can click on the Curacao link to see more trip photos. In July 2012 we vacationed in Oregon and we went to hubby sisters wedding in Bainbridge Island Washington.







 In 2013, we were in Florida, traveling around from Tampa down to Key West Florida. 
In Nov 2013 hubby and I visited New Mexico/Texas.




 In 2014, our 24th Anniversary  another favorite place to visit was Belize. We spent part of the week at a jungle resort and the other part of the week was at a beach resort.







 In 2015, our 25th Anniversary,  below another visit to Chincoteague Island Virginia.  Longer trips in 2015 were to Florida 2015   and Washington State 2015.





 In 2016, our trip was to Virginia Beach, Va.. another trip in March 2016 a road trip to Tennessee to see the Sandhill Cranes migrating and Falls Creek Falls . July 2016, we bought a 2nd home in Lakeland Fl.  In October 2016 we lived part time in Lakeland Florida till March 2017.  Every day during that time was like a vacation.  We sold that Lakeland Fl home in March 2017.



 

In 2017, Our 27th anniversary trip was 2 weeks in May traveling around Washington State.  One of my favorite places was Sequim and the Dungeness NWR. In Sept 2017 we took a road trip to Erie, Pa.








In 2018, our 28th Anniversary trip, was a road trip through Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia. Below our hike to Old Man's Cave in the Hocking Hills SP, Ohio



In 2019, our 29th Anniversary trip was in June to the Finger Lakes NY. Below is the Watkins Glen State Park. In Jan 2019 we drove to Florida again.


We have many happy memories from trips, these are from the past 10 years and our honeymoon shown in the mosaics above. Older photos and trips are in my archives.  Now we are looking forward to more trips and years ❤️ together.

  16. What a wonderful way to celebrate your anniversaries by traveling to all the places you both enjoy. Lots of wonderful memories and photos! I see some places in those lists that I have been to or wish to visit...I was born about 5 miles from Fall Creek Falls, TN and most of my Ancestral family is buried in our family Cemetery located near the entrance to the park.

  22. Happy Anniversary to a wonderful blogger/photographer. Your travels show how much of our world you have seen and shared here! Thank you for doing that...for us arm-chair travelers. Last year when I was drawn to drive all over the US, I told myself I could still do this, so I'd better just do it. I'm glad I did then...since now I'm tucked into my own apartment. I always appreciate your blog posts.
